LUCCA,

HOW WE LOVE YOU.

 

LET US COUNT THE WAYS ...

Lucca is one of those cities that displays itself magnificently season by season whether it be MURABILIA EXPOSITION - a gardeners paradise , or the LUCCA SUMMER FEST where performers as diverse as Lady Gaga and Arctic Monkeys to Stevie Wonder and The Eagles have performed, Lucca brings the world within its walls to keep tourists and locals alike entertained throughout the year. We will share some of those with you as they unfold.

 

Within these walls you will find accomodations both grand and humble. Part of the attraction in staying within the famous 'centro storico', is that you are in fact living like a local.

 

The city's proximity to mountains, seashore, Chianti region, grand cities like Florence and beyond make it a perfect jumping off point for an extended stay.

Adagio is Liz's lovingly restored one bedroom rental apartment in the historic center, steps from the Botanical Gardens with easy access to the walls and train station.

 

A magical place to lay your head.
