My husband and I travel in Italy quite a bit and this apartment exceeded all of our expectations . From the moment I contacted Luciano online, and during the entire booking and payment process, Luciano was promptly responsive. We stayed in the apartment for one month and he continued to be easily reached even after we had moved into the apartment. He contacted us on several occasions to see if all was going well and if we needed anything.

From the minute you arrive, he has arranged so many personal details that the apartment really feels like your real "home away from home". He even pays for your taxi when you arrive! Such a wonderful thing when you have been traveling and tired and not able to communicate well with the locals. He greets you in front of the apartment and welcomes you personally with a tour around the apartment and a bottle of prosecco, a bottle of water, and a lovely bakery treat for your breakfast the next morning. That was so perfect for us because all we had to do was find a place for dinner and then go home and go to bed and no worries about groceries until the next day.

And, the apartment is immaculately clean and quite large, just as described on-line. He even comes to change out the lovely sheets and towels for you! As frequent travelers to Italy we found the beds to be much better than average for comfort. And we really appreciated the large wardrobe closets with lots of clothes hangers and storage space.

This location in the heart of Lucca is perfect for accessibility to shops, restaurants, and the bus and train stations. You will fall in love with the view overlooking the Piazza Anfiteatro! It is lively and there is always a changing scene so great people watching from your living room and kitchen windows. Also, there are beautiful sunrises and sunsets from these windows

You are surrounded by many great restaurants but the apartment kitchen is quite large and well furnished with a large table if you chose to eat at home. So many other wonderful touches that you don't normally find in other apartments when traveling.

I would love to return to Lucca again and stay in this apartment and I most definitely recommend to my friends and relatives and all other fellow travelers to Lucca!

Luciano was a great host and we felt very welcomed by his generous. hospitality! Thanks Luciano!

Wonderful Apartment in Lucca

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in Lucca at Luciano and Rosa’s apartment (Property #305236). The apartment was great, exactly as described in the listing and by the other reviewers. Luciano and Rosa were very accommodating and helpful with good recommendations for restaurants and gelato! We also found the restaurant located very close to the apartment entrance to be quite good and went there more than once. Lucca is a wonderful town for families and our ten year old son had a great time riding bicycles around the city walls, eating pizza and of course gelato. We hope to return next time we're in Italy.

Luciano's and Rosa's lovely Anfiteatro apartment in Lucca

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I truly enjoyed our three-night stay in Luciano and Rosa’s apartment (Property #305236) overlooking Lucca’s historic Anfiteatro. This roomy two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment was immaculate, pleasantly decorated, and comfortable (good mattresses!), and contained all the modern conveniences we could have asked for. Although the apartment is certainly large enough to accommodate more than just two people, we found it so very refreshing and restful to have the extra space, given our weariness from traveling.

The town of Lucca is full of treasures—history, architecture, beautiful scenery (we enjoyed strolling atop the historic town walls), good shopping and eating (don’t forget the gelato!) at nearly every turn—and it was all literally within footsteps of the apartment door. Yet, a great surprise to us was the quietness of the apartment building (respectful residents) and of the Anfiteatro itself, which fairly “closed down” by ten o’clock every evening. We had expected to hear all kinds of noise from this popular public place…but were pleasantly contradicted. The prevailing nightly peace and calm were heavenly.

We’re keeping Luciano and Rosa’s information safe at hand, ready for our return trip someday. We just hope it’s soon!

THANK YOU, Luciano and Rosa. The service you provide is not simply the provision of an “apartment”—it’s much more like a therapeutic retreat!

Looking forward to next time,

Gina du Bois

The BEST apartment you will EVER rent!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for amazing accommodation in Lucca I suggest you quickly grab this one - you will love it. Upon arrival, Luciano and Rosa happily greeted us (and insisted on paying for the taxi). I could not believe it when we entered the apartment - it was beyond what I expected. It has 2 large bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms. The kitchen is beautiful and fully equipped - and they even had a bottle of wine chilling for us! The windows are large and overlook the Anfiteatro, which was stunning!! When Luciano opened the shutters to that view I could not believe it! What a view!! This location was so amazing, we loved the Anfiteatro and all the great restaurants, and we loved people watching from our windows. Luciano and Rosa have made this apartment so comfortable in every way, we were so sad to leave it. During our trip to Italy and staying at several places this apartment was a highlight for us, I don't think it could get much better. Luciano recommended the gelato shop down the street as the best and we couldn't agree more (we went there daily, and the lovely owner bought our gelatos on our last night because we were regulars!) Wifi, laundry, coffee - everything was great. (And thank you for the stocked candy bowl that my daughter loved!) Thank you so much Luciano and Rosa - your high standards and love of what you do show, and we appreciate your help and suggestions.

We just returned from a month long trip to Croatia and Italy, two weeks of which we enjoyed in Lucca with our neighbors with whom we shared this flat.

As prior travelers to Lucca, the first time I saw this flat on VRBO back in April, I knew it was something special simply due to location and view. The view, as many others have noted, is fantastic, right over the Anfiteatro which is daily a constant scene of entertaining activity. But, I’m happy to also say, no noise that disturbs the flat. A very appealing aspect of the location is that the flat gets marvelous afternoon sun from the several windows overlooking the Anfiteatro so is light and warm.

The flat is ideal for two couples. It has two bedrooms and two baths separated by a hall, the living room, and kitchen so each couple has a private space separate from the other but with the living room and kitchen as common areas. The living room and kitchen are both large. All rooms in the flat have high ceilings so there is an open feeling.

The kitchen is fully equipped with all necessary for preparing meals should you choose not to enjoy one of the many nearby restaurants.

Located within minutes from the flat are a typical European grocery as well as smaller delis, butchers, cheese, and wine merchants. Getting ingredients for meals is easy.

That said, there are several restaurants within a 5 minute walk offering a range from higher end to everyday dining experiences. And, that’s for restaurants not in the Anfiteatro which tend to be quite touristy, but are good for a late afternoon drink and people watching. Walking 15 minutes, there is a very large range of restaurants.

The flat is also well located to easily visit many of the sights of Lucca. Within a 5 minute walk are the San Frediano church, Torre Giunigi, Via Filliungo with its many shops, Palazzo Pfanner, and the wall encircling Lucca. Walking the wall is most enjoyable for people watching - it’s about 2.5 miles or an hour to walk around. San Michele church and San Martino duomo are within a 10 minute walk.

Luciano and Rosa are great hosts who truly are interested that you enjoy your stay in Lucca. Lucian is exceptionally responsive to email requests usually answering within short hours to your inquiries. Compared to many VRBO flat owners, that is exceptional response!

So, overall a great place that we would much recommend to visitors to Lucca!

Absolutely we will stay again on future visits to Lucca!

My wife, my brother and I just returned home after spending 6 weeks in Italy. It was not our first trip there. We have been home for 4 days now and we miss Lucca, Luciano and Rosa, where we spent 2 fantastic weeks in their apt. over looking the anfiteatro. Luciano and Rosa made us feel at home from the very first meeting. The apt. was more than we could ever imagine. We felt like we belonged there. The entertainment from the anfiteatro was very enjoyable,from an opera singer, violinist, cellist and a rock band, not to mention a car rally, a wedding and an archery procession, after a tournament, all dressed in medieval costumes. All that just outside your windows. The 2 weeks in Lucca was the high light of our trip, which included Monterosso, Rapallo, Portofino and Venice. You will read of steps to the apt. as detrimental but once you see the apt. you will discover it was worth every step. To rate our 2 weeks there, 5 stars, does not do it justice. We look forward to seeing Luciano and Rosa Again Thank you for sharing your time and apt. with us.

Frank, Donna and Richard
