Between the impressive fortress walls, oval shaped piazza where the Roman Amphiteather used to stand and numerous churches and towers, you can easily spend a day exploring close to home.
Only a short distance from Lucca, the villa has easy access to major roads for visiting Florence, Pisa, Cinque Terre and the nearby sandy beaches of Viareggio and the Versilia coast. However, there is no need to travel far to see the beauty and history of the area: royal villas, Roman ruins and the Leaning tower of Pisa are all closeby.
