Passing Through Pisa!

... be pretty creative with our meal planning! The next morning we woke up, and took a train to Viareggio and spent Valentines Day on the beach! Once again, we were the only ones in bathing suits, and almost the only ones on the whole beach! It didn't stop us from soaking up the sun, drinking way too much cheap wine, and splashing around in the Mediterranean! It almost seemed surreal laying there on the beach, with the glimmering water in front of us, and mountains in the background. ...

... folk. Shops look wonderful. Bank card still healthy but suitcase gaining weight as we go. Provolone at ends of our via,provided us with fine fare to make antipasto platter and pasta dish to welcome the Murrays. Old apartment building has frescoes in kitchen area dated 14century so full of charm and character. Much of the furniture looks like my mums. Comfy beds and great local ...

... to come and go all the year. It is a lovely city, but I am not sure why they would choose this over all the other beautiful Cities of Italy. Maybe I was spoilt with Santa Margherita, maybe I just need the water, or purely and simply...... everyone is different.
I still found it a bit unnerving and I haven't felt very safe in the evenings. I would certainly advise anyone to stay inside the walls when they come ...

... breads, olives, extra virgen olive oil, basalmic vinegar (that was the best we have ever tasted) and 6 types of wine they produce along with a dessert wine. We ate and ate at long tables in tents on the grounds....It was bliss. Then we rode back and sang songs on the bus. We napped and went to dinner and a show. The mediterranean is smooth and gorgeous with mountainous islands glistening in the late evening sun...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Ai Cipressi Bed & Breakfast Lucca

    Great Base for Tuscany

    from

    As a 3 star hotel, this was very good value. Rooms were spacious with large bathrooms too, and despite being just off a fairly busy street, it was quite quiet. Our hosts, Daniele and Gabriele were incredibly helpful, suggesting great value restaurants in Lucca, and great day trips out of Lucca. They even let us use their computer every day to e-mail our kids back in Canada!

    One thing that would have been nice, is to have a small fridge in the room. We found out later that they have a room with kitchen facilities for the same price as those without. The air conditioning unit was a little weak, and it took a while for the room to cool down, but this is minor.

    We would definitely go back and stay with them again.

    Ideal Location and Accomodations

    from

    Our 3 night stay in May at the Hotel Ai Cipressi couldn't have been any better. Our room was spacious, attractive, bright and spotlessly clean. Gabrielle and Daniele are extremely helpful in answering questions, giving directions, providing maps and extending themselves in service to their guests. The old city gate is a short 5 minute walk and leaving the car parked at the hotel is a bonus. The area is quiet and close to everything. The exterior of the property is attractive with flowers and you can relax outside with table and chairs provided. We highly reccomend a stay at Ai Cipressi as Lucca is an ideal location to visit and this hotel is reasonably priced. You won't be disappointed!

    Couldn't be better !

    from

    What Trip Advisor Member, Vancouver, Canada, March 2005 wrote is our opinion in a nutshell. We made a booking for two weeks in May 2005 already in Nov. 2004 and that we didnīt regret. Everything was very, very good and we look forward to visit this region of Tuscanny again.

    Thanks again Gabriele and Daniele !

    Book this hotel if you're traveling to Lucca!

    from

    My husband and I spent 12 days traveling from Nice to Umbria in March - April 2005. Lucca was one our favorite stop. The old town walls are really amazing. I booked a night at the Ai Cipressi because we had been in Cinque Terre hiking, but because it was Easter weekend, I couldn't locate a decent hotel with a vacancy. We were traveling to Florence next and Lucca was one the way. I am so glad we had the opportunity to visit there. I wish we could have stayed a little longer (two nights/three days would have probably been perfect). This hotel is a real bargain. The least expensive we found on our trip. However, it didn't feel cheap. The room was nicely decorated with a large bathroom and (surprise!) had a kitchenette. It was impeccably clean. The Ai Cipressi also had a small parking lot at no extra cost. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this hotel.

    Fantastico!

    from

    What a find! We have just spent 4 days in Ai Cipressi Bed and Breakfast in Lucca. What can I say that everyone hasn't already said? Wonderful holiday made extra special by the friendly and helpful family who run Ai Cipressi. They couldn't do enough for us. Good location just outside the walls and we especially liked having the use of the bikes - working off all those calories! A great and unique way to get about Lucca and easy on the feet! Near to the train station. Good breakfast. Room was very clean, bright and well decorated. Lovely bathroom well appointed with large bath.

    Am already checking out the flights to go back!

    Loved the personal touch

    from

    We stayed at Ai Cipressi for two nights in the second week of March and were very glad we did. Gabrielle and his brother Danielle (both speak English quite fluently) went the extra mile to make us feel at home. We had made our reservation by exchange of email in less than an hour from our initial inquiry, so we already had a taste of their responsiveness. Everything was as we expected. Our room was large, clean and comfortable. Gabrielle told us that he or his brother personally inspect each room after the cleaning staff have completed their work. As we had a car, parking was an important consideration in selecting our accomodation. Ai Cipressi offers free parking in their private courtyard. Once parked, we did not need our car in Lucca as the hotel is located less than 5 minutes walk from the walls of the city. Breakfast was served in a room just off the office. We had requested juice. croissonts and ham sandwiches with hot tea as our choice, and that was what we were offered. Their recommendations for restaurants worked very well for us (try the Baralla with its impressive decor and good regional cuisine), and their honour system minibar for soft drinks and beer at one euro each is a really good deal. It is a family run operation that we would happily recommend it to anyone looking for a personal touch in their accomodation arrangements in Lucca.

    Wonderful place

    from

    It was a wonderful place to stay and the boys (Daniele & Gabriele) were kindly, helpful in every problem and questions we had. Our room was fantastic, very clean and big with all facilities you need and the bathroom was big too!

    We will return in the future there and we would recommend it to other guests, who want to stay in a wonderful little city and in a wonderful place to sleep.

    Thank you again for your hospitality

    So impressed we stayed an extra day!

    from

    We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Ai Cipressi. It was the nicest place we stayed in Italy and is run by extremely helpful and friendly people. We had only planned to stay one night but were so impressed with Ai Cipressi and Lucca that we added one more night to our stay. The rooms are very large, impeccably clean and everything is new. Finally a large bathroom with a bath tub! The owners are wonderful, outgoing people who want to ensure you enjoy your stay. They recommended local sites for us to see, went over maps and even helped us find a place to stay in Florence. They even drove us to and from the train station. If your in Lucca, this is the place to stay.

    This place apparently opened in april and as another reviewer has mentioned, is run by some very helpful people with good knowledge about the area.

    An apartment for the price of a hotel

    from

    Spent 5 comfortable nights enjoying laid-back Lucca. For your money you get a complete studio apartment with a fully equipted kitchen, everything very clean and modern. There's a satellite TV system in your room with hundreds of channels from all over the world. The walled city of Lucca is a short five minute walk from the Ai Cipressi. Rental bikes are also available from the hotel, they appeared to be in very good condition.

    The family that runs this place goes the extra mile to make you feel welcome. They spent plenty of time going over maps, books and literature with me in order to acquaint myself with the Lucca area. Their restaurant/cafe recomendations were spot on.
