As you arrive in the city of one-hundred churches, you’re sure to hear the bells chiming in harmony as you wander its ancient streets. But there are surprisingly modern pockets in this medieval wonderland. This apartment displays 21st-century sensibilities, while fully immersed in the historic walled city of Lucca. It’s less than a two-minute walk from the bustling main square, Piazza Napoleone, and seven from the wine bars and restaurants of the Piazza dell'Anfiteatro. And inside, traditional meets modern in an incredibly stylish manner. We love the bright, white lounge and open-plan kitchen, where vintage-style armchairs meet the angular lines of the high breakfast bar. Textiles such as velvet and rattan combine with wooden furniture to create a unique space, wrapped in understated luxury. For striking vistas of surrounding architecture like the palace and San Giusto church, head out to your private, covered balcony. The warm, terracotta tones make this spot feel superbly cosy. We recommend a chilled glass of chianti, some fresh Italian bread, and juicy local olives to set the scene. You’ll never tire of these views, it truly feels as though you’re ensconced in the surrounding architecture.
