... the air to take silly pictures. Of course, we did the exact same thing. After about 30 minutes of trying to get the perfect shot it was starting to drizzle so we looked at the other two buildings in the piazza which had entrance fees so we didn't do in. One was the Pisa Cathedral and the other was St. John's Baptistry. We were glad we went back for the once in a lifetime ...
... We lucked out with no rain while we ate outside. Returning to continue our walk around the wall, we could see the clouds moving in again. At the next walkway down, we needed the restroom so, we made a stop at the visitor center (which had some interesting, self-cleaning, pay toilets...).
While in the Visitor's Center, it started to rain again. We waited out the hardest part of the storm but soon decided to carry ...
Today we had an early start; we were up at 6:30. We have been going to bed slightly late and sleeping in slightly late, so we were all a little tired. The kids have been such good travellers...they are both responsible for their rolling suitcase and a small day bag. Nothing has been left or lost so far! There are very few escalators or elevators and the kids have to carry their bags up and down stairs at the train stations all the time. I don't think I've ever heard ...
... a highly testosteroned little male dog that was fighting and biting his master's shoes. We have learned that it is cheaper to fly to Italy, buy postcards, and take them home rather than send them from Italy, but never fear, we will still send a few cards from this lovely country! The sunset was great tonight, on this, the sixth of May, which is the birthday of a great man of Norwegian and other European descent. Buona ...
... we made room for a gelato, and ate this as we strolled home. A beautiful end to a wonderful day.
We loved all our medieval villages we visited, Lucca in particular was large enough to spend a few days exploring, as it had so many interesting side streets as well as shops to cater for all ages and interests, the main street Via Fillungo offered everything from bookstores, fine jewellery, sporting sports to designer clothes, not to mention a range of cafes and restaurants. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Villa Romantica Lucca
Best value for money..
Of all the places we stayed during our Tuscan holiday, Villa Romantica was definitely the best value for money. Although Lucca itself did not match up to some of the other wonderful towns we had visited, the accommodation and facilites at Villa Romantica were first class. Our room was gorgeous: beautifully decorated and spotless and it actually consisted of a bedroom (with TV) and a separate lounge (with TV) as well as a little balcony and a very clean and practical bathroom. We also made use of the lovely pool and perfectly manicured garden. The host family was very helpful and the breakfast was delicious. 10 out of 10!
Beautiful, well run hotel; excellent value. Location is rather busy in terms of traffic noise and far from bucolic, but very convenient to the historic core of Lucca. Hosts are extremely helpful.
This is a very well run hotel. We stayed in the junior suite and it was beautiful. The air conditioning worked very well, it was quiet and the bathroom very modern.
The hotel has a pool and bikes for use. We used the bikes to ride around Lucca and really enjoyed ourselves.
The breakfast was extra and a little pricey but very good. I would suggest this hotel to my friends if they were ever going to Lucca.
Villa Romantica is a superb hotel with such a real home comfort and charming staff. Our room was perfect and breakfast delicious. We will recommend it to all our friends and hope to return soon!
A beautifully kept hotel - excellent position for anyone wanting to explore the walled city of Lucca. Our host was a charming knowledgable Italian gentleman and his wife. We shall return. The rooms were very tastefully decorated and very clean.
Stayed here at the end of September. We booked the junior suite which was beautiful. The decor and the cleanliness of the room was first class.
We would definately book again should we return to Lucca
Wonderful place to stay!
Our stay at Villa Romantica was just wonderful! We thought the property was absolutely beautiful, the hosts friendly and professional and we have already recommended Villa Romantica to friends and colleagues. We intend to make an annual visit.
We booked this wonderful place based on their web page. The web page does not do it justice. The villa is enclosed in a residential section just outside the walls of the town. We followed the locals to find the shortest route through the walls to medievel Lucca. The town is very compact and walkable and not overrun by tourists. We spent five days here using it as a base to explore Tuscany. Villa Romantica is wonderfully landscaped, with a small pool tucked away in a corner. the accommodations were very good, well appointed, with a Tuscan flare. There were large shuttered windows, beautiful furnishings, a canopied bed and a modern bathroom in the very reasonably priced suite that we had. The Favilla family was very accomodating and helpful. They are attentive to every detail. It was like staying with relatives. Adolfo made the best coffee we've ever had. They gave us each a parting gift. Driving within the walled city is very difficult if not impossible even to get to the hotels. Villa Romantica has its own parking. Don't miss it.
