How to Find the Best Lucca Hotels with Venere

Lucca is a city in central Italy within the Province of Tuscany. Having been founded in Roman times, the community is known for its intact medieval renaissance walls and many historical architectural sights. Lucca became a Roman colony in 180 B.C., and was also famous for Julius Caesar forming a political alliance with two other leaders known historically as the Triumvirate while there. In 1160 Lucca fashioned itself a charter and became an independent republic, remaining this way for another 500 years. Because Lucca has a great deal of historical appeal, tourism is a thriving industry. Venere can provide the visitor of this historical area a list of all of the Lucca Hotels options that they will ever need. Venere also gives the prospective traveler a generous amount of interior photographs for each hotel listing that they have. Venere offers tourists a great rating system where former guests can list their impressions of the hotel, helping guests to determine the hotel is right for them. Venere customers have the option of searching for a hotel listing by star rating or filtering the listings by price as well.

What's Lucca Like?

The first thing that the city of Lucca has to offer visitors is the ancient city walls. They offer a great amount of historical value for history buffs because they are one of the only fully intact city walls in existence. Many of Luca's city walls have secret rooms and passageways that can be toured for a set fee. Tourists can also visit the Torre Guingi, which is a tower that was built in the 15th century. The tower is unique for a variety of reasons, including the panoramic vies of the city it offers visitors as well as the fact that there are some ancient oak trees actually growing on the very top of it. Another important landmark for any visitor to consider is the San Michelle in Foro Church, which was completed between the 11th and 14th centuries. The church sports a remarkable facade that is very eclectic in nature and a wonderful statue of an angel with wings that were intentionally made adjustable so they did not break from wind pressure. The church stands at the center of the old town, which is noted for being the area where an ancient Roman amphitheater used to stand.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Lucca

After getting Venere to help with booking at one of their many Lucca hotels, visitors will need to know some facts about the city in order to properly explore it. Lucca has a number of regional trains that pass through the town and visitors can take them for a very reasonable rate. Be aware, however, that there are often delays. If you need bag storage while you are exploring Lucca, please be aware that the service is not free. It will generally run you around 2 euros per bag per hour, which can add up in a hurry.

The water comes from a stream situated at the base of the nearby Pisani Mountains. You can trust Venere for all of your hotels where you decide to remain in Lucca for the duration of your trip, decide to explore the rest of Italy, or if you travel even further around Europe as a whole!
