We booked this hotel last minute. The price was reasonable for a good quality hotel - no great luxury but none was promised. Everything was clean and serviceable. Not much character but all modern conveniences. The breakfast was standard and the service courteous.
The location wasn't great but again, it was where it said it was so there were no great surprises, positive or negative.

... well worth a look. Three cars were driven the 8km to Lucca & eventually parking spaces were found & we regrouped in front of one of the entrances to Lucca. Wandered within the walls of Lucca. Very charming. Had bruschetta & a coffee for lunch. Decided to meet back at the gates at 3.00pm so people would be home for when the cook was due to arrive at about 4.30pm. Tiziana arrived at about 6.00pm. ...
... old building with a baroque style garden that was begun in the 1600's. Successive owners added and modified till the Pfanner family took control in the mid 1800's. The mansion now houses a permanent exhibition reflecting the living style of times past. Frescoes adorn the walls, some for artistic purposes, others to give depth to the room, as was the fashion at that time. There is also a collection of medical-surgical instruments used at the end ...
1500's was a time when a lot of damaged or in disrepair fortresses and walls were pulled down to make way for progress using the blocks and fondations for building anew. Lucca's arena is a good example of this as you can see in picture here...housing was built using existing pillars and on the Roman foundations, however the Lucchese decided their walls were worth saving and so 500 years ago ...
... climb the tower and it was the best part of the day. Imagine going around in circles up the building and sometimes you are up in the air and then you are being pulled down on the other side to the ground. Scott said he knew how Liza Minneli felt with vertigo in Arrested Development. It was alot of fun. You can also see the photo of Scott trying to push the tower back up:)

Late Tuesday night, still 27 degrees, and I have just returned for my ‘gelato’ run and was thinking all the way there and back what a truly perfect place Lucca would be to retire to. Of course my view may change when winter hits and it’s raining everyday but somehow I don’t think so….
I constantly think of older retired couples in Australia (and most other suburban type communities) ...
