4 of us stayed in this beautiful apartment for 10 days and loved every minute of it! It has a great split master floorpan so both couples had privacy. We loved finding local wines and cheeses and sitting on the terrace every night to listen to the Puccini concert. Lucca is an absolutely gorgeous city. We took train trips to Florence and Pisa, but were so ready to get to the peace and quiet of our "home" at the end of the day. Deborah and Paola are amazing hosts. They took care of everything you could possibly need, and then some. Its a treat to go on a tour of Cinque Terre with Paola. And see if they will set you up with a personal Tuscany wine tour or a trip to Volterra with Andrea. Do not forget to walk the wall and stop for expresso in the mornings! We cannot wait to start planning our next stay here.

My friend and I stayed at Al Battistero for the last week of a three-week trip to Lucca and did not want to leave! This is a gorgeous apartment with all the comforts of home if your home is luxuriously decorated, has a professional kitchen and a terrace overlooking the back of San Giovanni Church were you can listen to the Puccini concerts every night. The beds are comfortable and I wanted to stuff my bed pillow into my suitcase and take it home, it was that lovely.
The location is perfect for walking to shops and restaurants but is quiet enough to feel hidden. We spent a lot of time wandering around the neighborhood, people watching, eating gelato and drinking very good local wines. We were also fortunate enough to be there the third week of the month when a huge antiques market is held in the neighborhood. Old silver table settings, paintings, ceramics, curios, lots of books and prints ... it was a unique event to wander through.
Debora is the best property manager ever. When we could not get a light fixture to turn off, she sent her colleague, Paola, over within the hour to take care of it. Debora and Paola made us feel welcome and cared for. Their travel suggestions and day trips added so much to our time in Lucca. If you want an experience that takes you from being a tourist to a visitor, I highly recommend renting this property for your stay in Lucca. And don't forget to walk the wall.
