I selected Evelina B&B for its location close to where the Luminaria di Santa Croce parade was passing. Excellent restaurants, bakeries, and other small shops are closeby. Silvia gave us a warm welcome and throughtout our stay provided ample breakfast food, especially a freshly baked local delicacy every morning.
My travel partner kept commenting that Evelina B&B exudes 'Old World Charm', reminiscent of living in Belgium several decades ago. Perhaps I do not appreciate 'old world charm' because I am a light sleeper and the walls are paper thin. In addition, most rooms share three toliet rooms at the end of a long hall, which meant passing by our bedroom. I could hear a neighbor in the adjoining room turn the skeleton key in her lock, walk pass our door, close the toliet room door and turn the lock on the toliet room door (repeat in reverse). I so suffered from lack of sleep that by the third night I took a Tylenol PM.
Even though we enjoyed sitting on the balcony, taking in a beautiful view along with meeting delightful fellow travelers, I doubt that we will return to Evelina B&B on our next visit to Lucca.
