Lucca is known as the city of a hundred churches. Inside the Renaissance walls there is a prosperous heritage of religious architecture, small oratories, private chapels and private noble palaces and churches, an artistic and architectural heritage, in addition to being religious. A wonderful and relaxing way to enjoy the city is walking up on the city walls, where it is possible to do a 4 km loop, the full length of the walls which surround the city.

This city has been awarded the “Orange Flag” from Touring Club and has received other important touristic awards such as the “Low City” and “One of the most beautiful small towns of Italy”. It has been the land which the famous poet Giovanni Pascoli adopted as his home and whose mansion in Castelvecchio can be visited.


Vetriano's Teatrino (Small Theatre)


It is the smallest public theatre in the world. 71 square metres, 60 seat audience with 20 seats on two levels of balconies: these are the numbers of this ancient barn nestled on the mountains of Lucca. Turned into a theater towards the end of the 18th century, it is so small that it has been accredited in the Guinness Book of World Records.


Versilia


Versilia, famous for its long seashores, is a marine area that satisfies both the needs of tourists looking for relaxation and those looking for cultural and night life. This area is also worth visiting during the winter for one of the most important Carnivals in Europe: The Carnival of Viareggio. Our staff highly recommends The Beach Club Moby Dick in Lido di Camaiore for a stay of relaxation and a lot of fun.
