Car: Recommended

Libertas is located wiithin Lucca's historic centro storico with all of its attractions, shops and services. It is an easy walk to both the train and the bus stations and Florence, Pisa, the Cinque Terre and many other cities and regions are just a short drive away. The Italian Riviera and Forte dei Marmi are just a half an hour away and the Abetone ski resort is about an hour. Lucca is a small city where it is easy to feel at home and is an excellent base for further exploring Italy.

 

Owner info

About the owner: I have been living in Lucca for almost thirty years now and have brought my family up here. It is a wonderful place to visit and continues to amaze me!

Why the Owner Chose Centro Storico (Capannori LU, Italy):
Lucca is close to everything in Tuscany, but is a bit of an undiscovered gem. A stay here is a look at what life in Italy is all about.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The palazzo is fully restored for efficient modern living in ancient splendor. The town's daily life is just a step away. The garage is a wonderful luxury and takes the guess work out of parking!
