The space
Our lovely house has NOT LIFT, so you'll have to rise 60 STEPS to get in. We usually do it easily, but consider it before booking please, if you're in good shape is perfect for you :)
Actually i have to say that it is an authentic opportunity for you, because of the fact that during the steps, you can admire the original old cave walls and the particular ceiling which is typical of the Amphitheater's houses od the Medieval time.
Once arrived inside you can enjoy an exclusive and authentic well decorated apartment finally, you'll find some very unusual objects which the owner, a famous painter of Lucca city named POSSENTI and his lovely daughter Maria arranged to make here a sort of paradise.
Maria put a lot of effort to make this place more charming and comfortable than it's by itself, she fortunately decide to demolish the wall who setted just in front of the kitchen so that you'll enjoy so much brightness from the large windows!
Do you like trains? I love the old ones in particulars so much and when i saw the original seats of an old cabin just in front of the entry, i literary fell in love with this house. I wish the same to you!!

Don't mind to rise the steps again.. till the top please, as you have to admire the amazing view from the amazing terrace on the roofs and the magnificence of San Frediano gold painting in front of you!

Guest access
The whole apartment is at your disposal, only just little closed cabin in the bathroom is for our use.

Other things to note
- Pay attention on the fact that there are 58 steps to rise, if you're not in shape, look at it please:)

Location

Lucca, Toscana, Italy

The proximity to Piazza Santa Maria where is the closets car parking is just a 5-minute walk away, allowing the tourist to enjoy a variety of services besides car parks, such as ATMs, hiring bikes, eating at some of the best restaurants in the city or the most fashionable localities, beyond the convenient access to the walls, not to mention the proximity to another beautiful square where the beautiful Basilica of San Frediano is located, which definitely deserves a visit for the spectacular adorned façade of the mosaic depicting the ascension in heaven Christ redeemable and attributable at the Lucling School of Berlinghieri. Inside you can admire famous works by Jacopo della Quercia. Piazza San Frediano becomes a protagonist on two occasions of a city celebration: on September 13th from here starts the procession of Santa Croce, which sees the city illuminated by small lumines at the base of mulit and palaces, and on April 27 when the celebrated Santa Zita feast is celebrated inside the basilica, home lived in the 13th century. and became holy for his immense generosity toward the needy and unlimited devotion to the Fatinelli family for which he worked. In the days of its celebration, the square becomes a flowered garden of thousands of colors thanks to the flower and plants exhibition, a unique scenario that I recommend to visit at least once.

Do not mind to make a break and enjoying good drink in one of our favorite place : Cafè Santa ZITA where you can choose among of many local drinks.

If you want to taste some of the best local pizza , take away a slice at PIZZERIA SBRAGIA in Via Fillungo or at the old pizzeria (only take away) DA FELICE in Via Buia.
