Activities/Attractions: Lucca sits on a plateau near the Serchio river, 19 meters above sea level, 30 kilometers northeast of the Pisa airport and 85 kilometers west of Florence in Northern Tuscany. Lucca was an important junction in Roman times, you'll see it in the north-south grid pattern of main streets and in the elliptical plan of the "Piazza Anfiteatro".

Lucca offers a multitude of old churches, little piazzas, towers and family businesses. Behind many an arching doorway there is a glimpse of vaulted passage or columned yard, usually private. This is a town where you can dispense with a map and simply walk or, like the locals, cycle. Key sites include:

  • the beautiful church of San Frediano
  • the statue of Lucca’s favourite son, Puccini, relaxing with a cigarette
  • a fine Duomo in the Pisan style, alongside its own museum, both of which contain fine work by Jacopo della Quercia
  • another grand church: San Michele in Foro
  • the Pinacoteca Nazionale, the town's art gallery
  • the Museo Guinigi, which contains sculpture as well as paintings

"This is a very comfortable B&B and newly renovated. Rooms are adequate, air conditioned, beds are comfortable and bathrooms are new. If you are looking for a nice and clean place to stay and at a reasonable price, this is it. The Santa Chiara is situated in the old walled town."
