For a family holiday

If you're planning a family holiday, central Lucca provides an array of family-friendly hotels close to the city walls and pedestrianised streets. Alternatively, consider a serene escape to the outskirts amidst the Tuscan countryside, where private villas offer a blend of comfort and freedom for families, surrounded by tranquil greenery.

For a couples holiday

Romantic escapades are splendid within the historical quarter of Lucca, where luxurious boutique hotels merge comfort and history, offering picturesque views of the city and private services for inner-city romantic experiences.

For a holiday with friends

For group travels, Lucca’s central regions offer accommodations with plenty of capacity. Choose a budget-friendly hostel for a cost-effective trip or splurge on a century-old villa converted into a modern stay with ample space for a memorable holiday.

When to Visit

Lucca maintains a Mediterranean climate, therefore, it's welcoming throughout the year. However, the most favourable time to visit is during the spring (April to June) when the climate is usually mild, and the countryside sparks to life.

The summer season (July to August) can become quite hot, yet it's the time when the city comes alive with the annual Lucca Summer Festival celebrating music. For those seeking less crowded times, early autumn (September to October) provides warm weather, fewer tourists and the opportunity to witness the autumnal transformation of the Tuscany landscapes.
