Where to stay in Lucca

Explore northern Tuscany from a hotel or B&B located in Lucca's historical town center. The city's luxury lodging options offer free parking and access to outstanding downstairs eateries. To experience a little of that famous Tuscan countryside, consider booking your stay at a family-owned farm just outside Lucca. Though a bit far from the city's main attractions, small farms in the surrounding area offer inexpensive rooms, good food, and a chance to experience Tuscany's nature and local way of life.

  • The Church of Santa Caterina, a beautiful church of Lucca full of ornaments, and frescoes. Nice to visit
    View original
  • The Baroque church of Saint Catherine is located in the city centre although somewhat secluded from Porta Sant'Anna and precisely in front of the old tobacco factory. Not surprisingly is also referred to as "the Church of cigar makers." Yes, because in fact the cigar makers after the work shift used to go in Santa Caterina to pray. This is a recently restored Church at the initiative of the Italian Environmental Fund as a result of a petition. Its layout is circular and today is used in various capacities for intellectual events and the like. You can access from the inside of the dome through a narrow stone spiral staircase closed between two walls. The dome has a fresco by bright pastel colours and depicting various saints important to Lucca as Santa Zita or Santa Caterina. The dome can be seen from the plan of the Church. Altogether a jewel citizen.
