Fantastic Apartment In A Fabulous Location In Lucca

  • 5 of 5

I find the prospect of picking a better apartment in Lucca very unlikely. My dad and I had a wonderful experience staying here for three nights in July.

Bruno is the owner and he is a terrific dude but I will get to that later. First I will tell you about the place. The location is second to none, literally overlooking the anfiteatro, which is a version of a Piazza. Tons of activity in this area but you could definitely find some quiet on the inside of the apartment.

The apartment is two full bedroom suites each with a separate bathroom. Both bedrooms had a king sized bed. The main bedroom was on the first floor and had ample space for storage and moving around. The one drawback of the place was that the second bedroom was a second floor loft style, which is common in Italy. It would be worked a bit better if I had been a bit shorter, but I managed just fine.

The bathrooms were spotless and had great water pressure and hot water for days. There were three AC units in the apartment, which was clutch because it was like 90 degrees plus while we were there.

The kitchen had all the typical appointments along with a dishwasher, which is rare for Italy. The apartment also had a washer and a drying rack which was certainly helpful. You don’t really need a dryer in the summer. The clothes dry really quickly in the heat.

So, Bruno was such a great person. He offered to pick us up at th car park and help us get our bags to the apartment. Lucca is an old school walled city and you need a special permit to drive within the walls. This was a huge help, but Bruno came up biggest for us when it hit the fan on our way out of town. Our car broke down on the highway just outside of Lucca. We had just checked out and were on our way back to Rome. We pulled into a fuel station and waited for Hertz to send a tow truck. The tow truck driver refused to give us a ride to the Pisa airport, so we were virtually stranded. I dropped Bruno a quick line on What’s app and he immediately sent his friend Luigi who was a licensed car for hire. Luigi got us to Pisa airport where we picked up our replacement car and made it back to Rome in one piece.

Thank you to Bruno for all he did to make our stay amazing. You get what you pay for in this game, and Bruno’s place was worth every penny. Stay here!!!!

We loved our stay at the apartment. It was just like the photos!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 fabulous nights at the apartment. Bruno was away so arranged for a friend to greet us which worked out perfectly. The apartment was spacious enough for the four of us (2 adults, 2 kids) and it was wonderful to have 2 bathrooms and the bedrooms on separate levels. The second bedroom was a bit small for our 2 teenage boys who shared the bed but was cozy. Air conditioning in the bedrooms was perfect for the 35+ degree weather. The location was amazing!!! Looking out over the piazza was exactly as we hoped and great for the kids to see us down below if we went for dinner without them. The three flights of stairs to the apartment and stairs to the second bedroom wouldn't be suitable for everyone but was helpful for staying fit given the wine and pasta consumption. We would highly recommend the apartment and would love to stay again in the future!

Wonderful aerie in Lucca !

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is beautiful and well appointed. Tastefully done with all the extra details taken care of. Really, the only problem is the stairs. There are three flights of fairly steep stairs with high rises, so this apartment is not suitable for older people who are not comfortable climbing steep steps, which luggage or groceries. The owners could not have been more helpful, but it is a climb, under any circumstance. Otherwise, it is in the best possible location and the advice from the owners is accurate and very helpful. Lovely but for the athletic only. !

A perfect stay in Lucca

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I wanted to spend our 30th anniversary in Italy, specifically Lucca . We had read so much about the city and wanted to see what it would be like to explore the city and surrounding sites on our own. We had been to Italy 5 years earlier on a packaged trip. It was wonderful but we wanted to do it on our own this time. We contacted a few places through VRBO. Most of the people got right back to us but the apartment that Bruno offered looked like the perfect place for us. It overlooked the Anfiteatro. The setting allowed me to enjoy my cafe americano each morning, watching the merchants start their day, and wine in the evening, people watching. One evening a group of people were singing Italian ballads. It was really beautiful. The apartment was very comfortable and had everything we could have asked for. The only drawback were the steps up to the apartment. I forget how many there were, but the first couple of times we went up them we were a little winded. After a day or so we didn't mind it though. They gave us more reason to enjoy the wonderful gelato! Bruno had wonderful suggestions for places to eat and even gave us the name of a driver we used to take us wine tasting one day. Bruno always returned voicemails or emails right away. He was the perfect host! If we are ever lucky enough to be able to return to Italy again, we hope we will be able contact Bruno and enjoy the beautiful city of Lucca!

Anfiteatro apartment

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying at Bruno & Ilaria's apartment. It started us on a "love" journey with Lucca that we will continue to cultivate! Bruno was a spectacular host. We are cyclists & he gave us many ideas for where to ride & we enjoyed every one of them. Thank you Bruno & Ilaria!!

THE best in Lucca

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Bruno and Iliria's apartment overlooking the Anfiteatro.

The apartment is very comfortable with all of the amenities that we could have hoped for. The small touches were the ones most appreciated; coffee, tea, sugar, oil, vinegar and especially the umbrellas!

This was the 4th stop on our Italian holiday – and although the other apartments were also very good, none provided those “little extras”. It’s the little things that count the most when you're far away from home.

We found Lucca ideal for our day trips to Pisa and the Cinque Terre, and the city itself is captivating in many ways. We could easily have stayed within 100 meters of the walls of the Anfiteatro, everything we needed was close by.

Wonderful restaurants (especially L’Angolo Tondo) fantastic gelato, good shopping, all within a few minutes’ walk. We couldn’t have asked for better.

Sitting on the window sill as the sun sets and the lights around the Anfiteatro come to life one by one, with a glass of prosecco in hand is the best way to end a day – we will remember our time in Lucca with great affection.
