Luxury villa Lucca
Tuscany Lucca - The elegant luxury villa is located in Tuscany near the city of Lucca, universally acknowledged for its rich history and stunning beauty. Beginning life as a Ligurian settlement according to some historians, it owes its fame to the Etruscans according to others. Lucca conserves to this day many of the noteworthy characteristics we associate with it including marvellous historic villas, Roman churches and amphitheatres. Subsequently occupied by the Goths and later the Byzantines, Lucca went on to become one of the most important capitals in the Longboard empire. In the following years many empires rose and fell, but one thing we are sure of is that Lucca was one of the most impressive and rich medieval cities in Italy whose rich history is still visible today.
