59 steps to rise but be a privileged, live in the heart of Lucca city at the corner with one of the most famous square of Italy -Amphiteatre of Lucca- and look at San Frediano Church! Enjoy romantic evenings al fresco terrace and the cool breeze during the spring nights,admire the stars in the sky... It can be perfect for a couple of lovers, a small group of friends or family, important is: LOVE the unusual, FEEL good and SMILE during the rise!!Our lovely house has NOT LIFT, so you'll have to rise 58 STEPS. We do usually it easily, but consider it in advance of booking,please.Actually i have to say that it is an authentic opportunity for you, because of the fact that during the steps,you can admire the original old cave walls and the particular roof which is typical of the Amphitheater's houses. Once arrived inside you can enjoy an exclusive well decorated apartment finally, you'll find some very unusual objects out, which the owner, a famous painter of Lucca city and his daughter Maria arranged to make here a sort of paradise.Maria put a lot of effort to make this place more charming and comfortable than it's by itself.

he proximity to Piazza Santa Maria is just a 5-minute walk away, allowing the tourist to enjoy a variety of services besides car parks, such as ATMs, bicycle hire at some of the best restaurants in the city or the most fashionable localities, beyond the convenient access to the walls, not to mention the proximity to another beautiful square where the beautiful Basilica of San Frediano is located, which definitely deserves a visit for the spectacular adorned façade of the mosaic depicting the ascension in heaven Christ redeemable and attributable at the Lucling School of Berlinghieri. Inside you can admire famous works by Jacopo della Quercia. Piazza San Frediano becomes a protagonist on two occasions of a city celebration: on September 13th from here starts the procession of Santa Croce, which sees the city illuminated by small lumines at the base of mulit and palaces, and on April 27 when the celebrated Santa Zita feast is celebrated inside the basilica, home lived in the 13th century. and became holy for his immense generosity toward the needy and unlimited devotion to the Fatinelli family for which he worked. In the days of its celebration, the square becomes a flowered garden.
