We stayed 2 nights at Il Seminario from 10/15 to 10/17/2012. It is a lovely b&b within the walls of Lucca and therefore convenient to everything. If arriving by train turn right on the main road and immediately enter the wall on the path to the left, then the b&b is in the first street on the left--extremely easy walk. Our room (Anfiteatro) was on the ground floor and was very large with a large bathroom with a huge shower. It was immaculately clean with a very comfortable bed which afforded us a great night's sleep--there was absolutely no noise either. Breakfast was served from 8 to 9:30 a.m. and was a substantial buffet that included buccellato (the traditional Luccan bread), pastries, toast, yoghurt, cheeses, meats, cereals, hard boiled eggs, fruit, and coffee or tea (which was served by the two wonderful staff who worked the breakfast, handled check-in and check-out, and managed the cleaning of the rooms). Paolo, the owner, was not very visible. He showed up and gave a general greeting to everyone during our first breakfast and that was the only time we saw him other than when we were leaving for dinner and he was passing us by on the street and didn't acknowledge us (unless he didn't see us just exit the building). However, we were given great dinner suggestions, ideas for touring the town, and a good recommendation for a laundromat nearby by the wonderful ladies. The town is small and everything is within walking distance. We loved biking the walls, climbing the Guinigi Tower, looking in the windows of all the incredible shops, touring Il Duomo and other small charming churches, and sitting for a drink in the Anfiteatro piazza. We would definitely stay at Il Seminario if we return to Lucca.
