This charming period luxury villa is located in Lucca in Tuscany, a city of great beauty, and with a rich and controversial history: born as a Ligurian settlement according to some historians, although others believe it has Etruscan origins.
Lucca is famous for its number of luxury villas and historically prestigious estates, and has preserved many of its ancient structures such as the amphitheatre, the forum and Romanesque churches.
Subsequently occupied by the Goths and later the Byzantines, Lucca, home of this magnificent luxury property for sale, went on to become one of the most important capitals in the Lombard kingdom.
In the following years many empires rose and fell, but one thing we are sure of is that Lucca was one of the most important medieval cities in Italy whose rich history and magnificence is still visible today.
