Delightful 6-Day Stay in Lucca

by deecat about Piccolo Hotel Puccini

We stayed in Lucca for six nights at the Piccolo Hotel Puccini, a delightful small independent hotel in the historic section near the Church of San Michele in Foro.
The service was outstanding. As a privately owned and operated small hotel, the owner/manager called us by name, gave us marvelous tips on where to eat, shop, and park. One night, we bought a delicious cake dessert, brought it back to the hotel, and shared it with him while we talked and talked.

Our room was a corner room that looked out on the Puccini Statue that is famous in Lucca. We had two large windows, a queen-sized bed, big chest, end tables, lovely small chair with material that matched the drapes. The ceilings were so tall with beautiful wood trim. Our bathroom was average size and adequate. It was quiet, comfortable, and quite attractive. We had the perfect view, color TV, direct-dial telephone, private bathroom, firm bed, and pleasant surroundings.

All-in-all, it was a lovely six days at the Piccolo Hotel Puccini.

Note: No breakfast was served at this hotel, and that was the only drawback. However, because of that, we were able to try several places around the hotel.j

Planning a trip ...

by KatrinK

I would like to visit Florens in this summer. What is the best way to visit Livorno and Tuscany, considering, that I don`t want to rent a car and I will travel alone.

Re: Planning a trip ...

by leics

Florence is in Tuscany, which is an Italian region.

The best way to explore without a car is by train or bus. You will be perfectly safe.

You can find train times, details and fares in English here;

http://trenitalia.it/homepage_en.html

There is no need to book train tickets online in advance. Just buy your ticket from the ticket machines: they are easy to use and have English language options. Using cash is best, imo, to avoid hassles with 'foreign' cards.

The rail network is extensive, trains usually frequent and fares very reasonable indeed. You can see a map of the Italian railway network here;

Double-click the map to enlarge.

If the place you wish to visit is not served by train, then there are also local buses. You can explore timetables for many here:

http://www.sitabus.it/wps/portal/DovePartire_Toscana

including the bus to Siena. It is better to take the bus than the train, as the former stops in the historical centre..Siena's railway station is some considerable distance away and you'll need taxi, bus or a long walk.

Here's the English link for Florence local buses:

If you let us know which places you would like to visit we can help with specific transport details, if required.

Travel Tips for Florence

IL DUOMO!

by Laura_Mexico

Visit the Cathedral, the so called Santa Maria dei Fiori church, also known as the Duomo, which has some very cool and artistic colored windows and a modest but beautiful decoration inside. The building itself is very impressive.

Reservation required?

by va8eha

Either arrive early at the major sites or (!!!TIME-SAVER!!!) make a reservation. Most museums will allow you to make a reservation for any of the others, or there is a phone number you can call (any TI should have it). It's easy, doesn't cost you anything, and allows you to smile at those in line as you're ushered in. :)

Tuscan cusine, like at home

by ResidenceHilda about Sostanza Troia

This is the typical Trattoria the florentines use to go with their relatives for special occasions. My grandmother loved it and it still a great restaurant, very traditional food (bring with you some digestive...), cooked perfectly, as at home, in an inphormal atmosphere.
One of the first suggestion in Florence if you wish a typical trattoria and a traditional meal.
The reservation is STRONGLY recommended. Ribollita (a sopu with bread and vegetables) and the florentine steak (high and very red....you can try to ask it welel cooked, but some chefs refuse it), divine!
