Lucca is the perfect fusion of a large city such as Florence and a small village. Encircled by the original old walls dating back centuries, it is a noble, elegant town filled with enchanting narrow streets and unexpectedly large and beautiful squares.
With a population of around 90,000 it is large enough to offer the stimulus and choice of cities, yet compact enough to feel intimate and accessible. A medieval town, you’ll find plenty of wonderful shops, both chains and charming local businesses, as well as historical bars, fantastic restaurants and fascinating secret gardens and hidden corners. Each summer thousands visit Lucca to enjoy the Summer Music Festival which attracts famous names from all over the world.
Lucca Real Estate market is full of jewels. Outside the historic centre are stunning villas – some of the are for sale! – and beautiful well-tended gardens, open to the public, as well as the Strada del Vino e dell’Olio (the Wine and Oil Route) for those looking to enjoy local goodies.
Lucca is an inviting, beautiful city, perfect for exploring on foot or bike, with exquisite local cuisine and a surrounding area filled with beautiful landscapes and gardens.
Peaceful days, plenty of cultural events and wonderful squares which invite you to sit and enjoy an aperitivo in the balmy evenings, with just the right amount of bustle and energy.
A frenetic nightlife, a clubbing scene and places to dance till the sun comes up. Lucca is all about enjoying restaurants and bars in a laidback, relaxed fashion.
Within the town walls you’ll find wonderful apartments and old houses with enchanting secret gardens, whilst outside are splendid villas and houses set in large, elegant parklands.
