“Fab for families”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

The kids playroom on the top floor for use by all apartments sold this place to our kids and its location and practicality sold it to us. If you are hesitating booking, don't! Kare, (one of the owners), met us at the gates to the walled city and walked us, (10 minutes), to the apartment. Welcoming touches like a bottle of wine on the table and Kinder eggs on the kids' beds. Location was superb, plenty of cafes within a few minutes walk but quiet enough in the apartment. We were on the 2nd floor but there's a lift anyway. Lovely open living area with kitchen, dining table, sofa etc. Room enough in the 2nd bedroom for our 3 children each on separate single beds - we're not planning on having a 4th but I'm sure you could comfortably fit a 4th bed in! We chose Lucca because it was only 25 minutes from Pisa but were delighted by the beauty of the place, usual stunning Italian piazzas but also fun to be able to walk the walls. Great views from the tower with the tree, (Kare can tell you which one). Fab stay and if there wasn't so much of the world yet to visit we would definitely come back here.

Room Tip: We stayed 2 nights and were woken earlyish in the morning on the Wednesday because our room was abov...

We stayed for 2 nights at 2italia while in Lucca, and we fell in love with the place the moment the owner (Kare) opened the door to our apartment. It was at once homey and cosy, but also modern and welcoming in a very easy way. the view from our 2nd floor apartment was amazing, right into the dramatic and quaintly charming Anfiteatro piazza. The apartment has everything you will need to make u feel u never left home, but the view from your window as u sip coffee is the dream of every traveller. What is even more impressive is the service of the owner. He is considerate and friendly, and ever willing to help out. A great guy! We recommend this for people who like to have a really good feel of a place they visit and still enjoy creature comforts. Great value for the price range! Close to everything.

We really enjoyed our stay in Lucca. We received a very warm welcome from owner who met us at the town gate and then took us to the apartments.
The apartment was absolutely perfect in terms of practicality, cleanliness and location.
We were lucky enough to have two joining apartments on top floor so we could compare the room with a view over the amphitheater with the quieter apartment without the view. Both apartments were great but different. In the front you really feel part of it as there is always something to look at - but of course it is noisier.
Our kids absolutely loved the playroom. After traveling for a month it was nice to have something so totally child focused and they just sank into it. Very useful in middle of day when it was too hot to be out sightseeing.
The owners provided a fantastic guidebook with lots of information. Everything is very easy to get to and buying food for meals at home was easy and fun.
Right across from the apartment door was a butcher - very friendly and helpful. And diagonally across the piazza (next to pizzeria) was a nice shop selling lots of interesting food but also fresh milk. Open 8-8daily. If you head off down the street that the butcher is on corner of you will find bakeries and wine shops and at piazza carmine there was a fresh fruit and veg market.
It took a while to get our bearings and realise how close everything is - just need to get out and walk about.
We would recommend Lucca and these great apartments to anyone but particularly families. Thanks for a great experience.

We stayed for 5 nights at the apartments in the anfiteatro. Lovely spacious apartment, modern decor with everything you need in it. There is also a great playroom at the top of the building for kids to play in. Perfect location and lovely to be able to walk and cycle everywhere. Lots to do even in the winter- and so many lovely restaurants, delis, and coffee shops to try out! We will definitely go again and would stay at the apartments every time.

We stayed here for a week. Great place to be. Apartment has everything you need. Overlooking the old amfitheater (ask for that on reservation!). Beware: you can not park your car in the city unless you have a permit. High fines, camera's control all traffic. So you should not bring heavy trunks, since it takes some 15 minutes walking through beautiful streets and city-wall to reach the free carparks outside the old city. Plenty shops, restaurants and trattoria's but also grocery-shops to do your own cooking. Lucca is also a good base to visit tuscany. Visit pisa, firenze, sienna, volterra, san gimigniano, montecalcino, bagni di lucca.

This is a great place to stay. Even that you do not have your own outdoor space, but that is not needed when you open the big windows. Newly renovated apartment that keep a high standard. Clean and fresh. Good for two couples or a family.
