Lying inside Lucca's famed city walls, this apartment is just as romantic as you would hope from this location. A large degree of that is down to the large covered terrace complete with lots of seating and views out over the local rooftops. However, special mention also goes to the interior design, which brings together rustic elements with more contemporary touches in seamless fashion. We love the chandeliers, floral artwork and chic furnishings, while the kitchen has more than enough room should you fancy taking a night off the local restaurants. However, don't be surprised if this space remains untroubled due to the fantastic array of dining options that lie within walking distance. And you'll certainly work up a hunger by wandering about Lucca's characteristic streets, stopping off at gloriously beautiful churches and squares along the way.

About Lucca

Lucca is one of Italy’s best-kept secrets. Surrounded by fortified walls, its core is a warren of pretty piazzas, traditional Tuscan trattorias, and beautifully preserved churches.

There’s a buzzy nightlife scene centred around cool enotecas and craft beer bars. On Via Fillungo, you’ll find some of Lucca’s finest boutiques, with high-end...
