for some pictures and explanation look on my San gimignano-page...But we loved it.

We visited , Siena , Pisa , Lucca , Florence all from that location.

I haven't stayed there, but it was highly recommended by a friend.

This is the web site for Podere Torre near Greve in Chianti. Check the web site and see what you think. It looks lovely and you could easily drive to the places you mentioned.

Have a wonderful trip.

Bologna is farther east than the Tuscany region. I would stay in the Lucca area if Pisa and Florence are the main cities you want to see. Lucca is a walled city and the villas are outside, but within a short distance from Lucca. Villa's are hard to get for only a few days, so a hotel made from a villa might be the answer. The Villa La Principessa may be the answer. See website: ciao

Glad you liked the Greve in Chianti web site. We have reserved two different places (a week each) from that site, Podere Albereto in San Savino and Terre di Melazzano near Greve. We're leaving tomorrow so I'll let you know what they were like. We're also staying in a farm in Umbria and another near La Spezia on our way back to France.

This is a new experience for us. We usually go to France and don't wander too far out of the country. We have been to Rome and over the border into Italy for day trips from France but we find this very exciting. We're taking camera and paints and planning to have a grand time.

Hope you have a good trip!

Travel Tips for Lucca

The Apuane Alps

by illudiumqh36

At about 60 Km far from the city centre in North direction there are the Apuane Alps (Alpi Apuane). This is a great place for many kind of sports in every moment of the year.
In winter it's possible to climb ice falls or to have great hike on snow/ice, obviously only if you are an expert, you have a proper training and tools in those mountains could be extremely unfaithful.
During Spring and Summer you can go hiking through woods or cliffs or even climb one of the many fitted peaks. A lot of mountain shelters (litteraly translation for "rifugio", a lonely house where you can have a rest and eat something in mountain) can be reached in half a day for a daily trip different from usual Tuscany tourists. A little training in hiking is recomended.

Fly in and out of the Pisa Airport

by pigletsmom

The Pisa airport is just aobut 30-40 minutes by car away from Lucca. The Pisa Airport is very convenient and much easier to navigate than the larger airports like Rome or Milan. Fly into London and catch a flight with Ryan Air for a cheap flight to Pisa.

Rent a Bike!!

by klasher

We went to Lucca for a day trip and would not have seen half of the town without bikes. We rented from a nice gentleman that had a shop right near the entrance you would access if you came in by train. We payed around 8 euros per bike for 4 hours.
After getting the bikes we picked up sandwiches, cheese, chips and some wine. We took the bikes for a spin on the old walls and found a perfect spot for a picnic.
The bikes offered us an opportunity to see the entire town in 4 hours.

Cathedral St. Martin

by micajo

Construction of the Romanesque Cathedral St. Martin in Lucca, Italy, was begun in 1063 by Bishop Anselm (later Pope Alexander II). Of this structure, the great apse with its tall columnar arcades and the fine campanile remain.

It's architecture is really great.

Church San Frediano

by micas_pt

Church San Frediano is situated on Piazza San Frediano, by Piazza del Anfiteatro. It is a beautiful church, made in white stone and with an astonishing painting on its façade – see detail on my first photo on the travelogue about Lucca’s churches.

Inside, the church is equally breathtaking. It is built in richly carved white marble and the side chapels show beautiful details and paintings. The pipe organ is not too big but richly it is carved in gold painted wood. There are some tombs inside, but I don’t know anything about them.

The entrance to this church, unlike some others in Italy, is free and you may wander at ease and use your camera.
