Hotels in Lucca
An almost perfectly preserved collection of medieval architecture and buildings from past kingdoms and dominions, Lucca lies in a beautiful lush valley north-west of Florence, Italy. This wonderful ancient Italian city oozes old-world charm and offers layers of history from each corner of its narrow, winding streets.
Lucca is famous for its intact city walls dating back to 200AD, numerous churches and medieval towers. Add superb Italian dining, fine antique markets, easy access to surrounding hills and endless beaches and you have Lucca, one of Tuscany's best-kept secrets. We have a series of Lucca hotels from which to explore the area.
Things to do and see
Originally founded by the Etruscans before becoming a Roman colony at around 180BC, Lucca's historical centre preserves the Roman street plan. The Piazza San Michele occupies the site of the ancient forum and traces of the Roman amphitheatre can still be seen in the Piazza dell'Anfiteatro today.
The city walls have now become a pedestrian promenade which encircle the old city, but were used for a number of years for racing cars. Still fully intact today, each of the four principal sides is lined with a different tree species and makes for an interesting stroll around the old city.
Something that cannot be missed is the Torre Guinigi, a very remarkable and important medieval tower. A characteristic making it stand out from other towers around the world is the hanging garden on the roof, home to a number of oak trees.
While the city is known as the city of 100 churches, it would be impossible to visit them all in a short stay. Visitors should, however, make sure they see Cattedrale di San Martino. This beautiful and predominantly Romanesque cathedral dates back to the 11th century and its stunning facade was constructed in the prevailing Lucca-Pisan style. Treasures inside include the Volto Santo crucifix sculpture and a 15th-century white marble tomb. There is also a magnificent rendition of The Last Supper by Tintoretto along with Domenico Ghirlandaio's (famous as being Michelangelo's master) masterpiece, Madonna Enthroned with Saints.
The old Roman amphitheatre is mostly gone now, with medieval houses in place of the ancient spectator stands. The amphitheatre is now famous for hosting music concerts, and many international performers including Van Morrison and The Eagles have played here.
Hire a car for the day, drive east to the nearby hills and find historic villas and Belle Epoque Montecatini Terme, where Puccini lazed in warm spa waters.
Food and drink
Lucca is home to a small sweet bread called Buccellato, which has a unique taste of anise. You can find it only in Lucca, in a small shop called Taddeucci, behind Saint Michael's church. The city also offers some of the most delicious Italian food in the country. Try Da Pasquale or the Antica Locanda di Sesto for some superb meals. Enjoy a huge Italian sandwich for lunch at La Tana del Boia or perhaps a truly magnificent ice cream at Le Bonta.
