    Vissidarte: Ceramics Made in Lucca

    by painterdave Written Mar 26, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Main Window of Shop

    This is one shop that features beautiful ceramics made in Lucca and I would rate this shop as the most interesting and actually most beautiful in all of Lucca. The artists that are featured are creative and you not only get the designs in ceramics you would expect, but there are some other artistic creations. The owner, Stefano, I found to be most friendly and talkative. He seems to enjoy people as much as selling his ceramics. If you want to know the background behind the art, be sure and ask.
    He is a patron of opera, so when you enter the shop there will be a flavor of Italy to fill your ears. This shop is open on Sundays, unlike a lot of Italian shops, they open at 10:30.
    I have bought ceramics three different times, sent things to the U.S. and I have always been pleased that it was packed properly and arrived safe and on time.

    What to buy: Wonderful ceramic bowls and plates with traditional design or scenes of Tuscany.
    Cork stoppers for wine bottles
    Water pitchers
    Wall hangings

    What to pay: His prices are not steep. You can find some bargain priced items.

    by travelgourmet Updated Feb 26, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    QUAINT SHOPPING LANES IN LUCCA

    Inside the walled city of Lucca are many cobblestoned lanes that are filled with buildings of the various boutiques and stores that attract the tourist. It makes for an interesting day of shopping. There is one bakery that stands out from the rest in Lucca. Forno a Vapore - Amedeo Giusti is the bakery located on Via Santa Lucia near the cathedral San Michele in Foro.

    Mercato del Carmine.: Where you can buy some fresh fruit and vegetables.

    by Maurizioago Updated Sep 16, 2011

    Mercato del Carmine is a covered market which was a church years ago. Here you can find only three or fours stalls where you can buy fruit and vegetables. When I visited this market there was a good choice of produce to buy at these stalls.

    Around the market there is a cafe, a sweet shop and some shops that sells meat of various kind. These shops have an entrance inside and outside the market. The cafe has some chairs and tables inside the market.

    There are the toilets into the market.

    The market is open from 7.00 to 13.00 a. m. and from 4.00 to 7.30 p. m. everyday except on sundays.

    What to buy: Fruit and vegetables.

  • Bertolucci Ortopedia: Tired Feet

    by suzqmac Updated Nov 1, 2010

    When your feet have just had enough of walking and the shoes you brought with you feel like they don't fit anymore - just go to Bertolucci Ortopedia. They speak excellent English and have a good range of Birkenstocks, Birkies and other shoes. You may also just like buying shoes!

    What to pay: Birkenstocks are half the price of the same product in Australia.

    What to buy: Buccellato is a cake flavoured with raisins and anise. It is sold fresh and soft.

    It can be stored in the fridge for many days.

    I bought two loaves of buccellato at Giurlani's. They were very good and cheap.

    Benetton Stock Outlet: Hot Shopping in Lucca

    by marimages Written Aug 28, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Small Shop - half menswear, half womenswear - maybe children's stuff too but I'm not sure.

    What to buy: I bought some great summer dresses which I have since worn to bits & my husband picked up some cool linen trousers. They had a lot of pink pants for men too, as that seemed to be the street fashion when we were there last. All good quality stuff though.

    What to pay: I don't think I paid more than E20 for each dress. Can't remember, but everything was more than reasonable.

    PENELOPE: If you are interesting in Cooking...

    by tzuki Written Jun 12, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    PENELOPE is a beautiful shop with lots of nice tools for cooking but also to set up nice tables.
    My partner and I spent quite a good time there and he was fascinated by the assortment of coffee spoons, knifes and glasses.
    The owners were also very helpful and smiley. We come back to take some pictures after asking permission to the owners. They were pleased of having us in the shop and photo.

    What to buy: We bought a serie of cutting knifes, a serie of coffee spoons, some glasses, a tomatoe cutter, a couple of hermetic wine bottle caps, a baking tin for cakes and a tin to do ravioli.

    Edison Book Store: huge library

    by PALLINA Updated Apr 17, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the heart of Lucca you will find this huge library. It is really nice located and offers a bar inside and some sofas where you can sit and read in peace. Surprisingly, I noticed public toilets inside as well. The only negative remark is the small quantity of books in English (none in German or French or Spanish). It's really a shame for such a touristy town like Lucca.

    La Grotta: pizzicheria

    by PALLINA Written Apr 16, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I wonder if it is a "shopping" or a "things to see tip". It's a real must-see shop with every type of Tuscan and Italian delicatessen. Surely not cheap but it deserves it. Wine and cheeses tasting also available (always remember that when you buy a cheese in a place and they put it in a vacuum system bag, the taste will change a bit).

    What to buy: Tuscan's specialities.
    PLEASE DO NOT BUY PARMESAN OR BALSAMIC VINEGAR (They are from Emilia Romagna, NOT from Tuscany)

    Lazzari Leather Bags: handmade bags

    by PALLINA Written Apr 16, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    First of all, you won't see any name in the shop window. I just asked him his name in order to remember it because I felt in love with his hand made bags and i want to go there again. Medium sized bags cost more or less 80 euros and he stressed NOTHING came from China but everything is still made by Tuscany's old handcrafts. If you are in love with nice bags as I am, do not miss it.

    Edison Bookstore: a late night bookshop

    by arty_girl Written Oct 26, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The fact that this bookstore was open so late at night intruiged me so I went for a browse late one night and enjoyed the atmosphere. Pretty much all the books are in Italian but I enjoyed seeing the design books they had on offer and bought a few cute giftcards. It's worth a look. There's also a coffee shop in it (generally by day though as far as I'm aware!)

    What to buy: There are lovely giftcards and of course many many books of all different sorts. There's a good selection of art books and many english books that are translated into spanish.

    What to pay: It's not overpriced but beware of buying too many books as you'll need to carry them home on the plane (or in your backpack!)

    Daniele Squaglia: Old paintings

    by noirroi Written Jan 2, 2008

    We found here some really nice old paintings - dating abt the beggining of 20th century and one even - end of 18th century. Although these paintings have an appropriate look for their age and are painted on thick paper or smth like this - it's a good place to find some old original painting for a good price.

    What to buy: Old paintings without frames

    What to pay: Abt 100 euro each painting
