We are fully committed to your safety and are following CDC and WHO cleaning guidelines. Additionally, since it is believed that coronavirus can survive on certain hard surfaces for up to five days, we are implementing an industry-leading five-day turnover time between guest stays to ensure that no guest can be inadvertently exposed to coronavirus. We will also provide hand-sanitizer for all guests and will leave cleaning materials in the apartment for your convenience. We look forward to welcoming you in Lucca!
Appartamento Jacopo is a beautiful top-floor apartment in a lovely historic palazzo. This apartment features a spacious living area with a charming loft bedroom, large ensuite bathroom, and second bedroom/bathroom with its own private entrance. You can always ask me any questions before booking via vanessa at luccatravels[.com].
The apartment is located in a quiet courtyard just 100 meters from Via Santa Croce, one of the main streets that bisects the center of town. Access to the top floor is provided by an elevator and a stairway of approximately ten steps.
Upon entering you will be greeted with the apartment's tall ceilings with exposed wood and tiles. The living area features tasteful antiques and the loft-level bedroom. From the windows you will overlook the lovely courtyard below.
The kitchen features granite countertops, refrigerator, cooktop, and bar. It is fully equipped with new cookware and serving pieces for six or more people.
The bathrooms are beautifully decorated in red marble tile with skylight and is equipped with a shower and/or bathtub, sink, toilet, and bidet.
The bedrooms are equipped with air conditioning and are furnished with all new 160 thread count 100% cotton linens, your choice of down or synthetic filled duvets, and your choice of synthetic or down pillows.
This apartment's enviable location makes it ideal for exploring all that Lucca has to offer. Since it is located in the physical center of the historic center, all of Lucca is no more than a few minutes away on foot. From here you can explore the amazing boutique shops that line Via Santa Croce and nearby Via Fillungo, visit the city's museums, theaters and concert halls, eat at any of the dozens of excellent local restaurants, and, of course, go for a leisurely stroll on the city's astonishing (and enormous) city walls. Being flat, Lucca is very bike-friendly and bikes (and pedal-cars) are inexpensive to rent for the day at any of a number of local shops.
Lucca is also the perfect city to explore all of Tuscany. Lucca uniquely combines an important mix of ingredients that we believe you'll find nowhere else in Tuscany. Its location is perfect for exploration: 30 minutes from the Leaning Tower and Pisa International, 30 minutes from the beaches of Viareggio, 45 minutes from the mountains, 60 minutes by train to Florence, and an easy 1-2 hour drive to Siena, Volterra, and the rest of Tuscany.
However, Lucca remains relatively underappreciated by tourists and is decidedly less overwhelmed by the throngs of tourists who populate places like Pisa, Siena, and Florence. The Lucchese - like most Tuscans - are also extremely friendly and welcoming people. These features make Lucca an excellent home base for your Tuscan adventures, and as certified Italophiles, we enjoy working to help you plan your excursions and find the best secrets that Lucca (and Tuscany) has to offer.Get the full listing »
