Immerse yourself in the history of Lucca with a stay in this top-floor apartment. It’s just across the street from Porta Elisa, one of the city’s iconic gates. There’s a range of shops and other attractions within walking distance too. One of the advantages of being on the upper floor of this building is the views over the city’s ancient walls. Being in the eaves, the ceiling in some areas is on the low side, so this place might not suit taller guests. Otherwise, this home is ideal for family or friends looking for a great location.
