La Magnolia B&B Lucca Tuscany Italy Bed and Breakfast Inn Hotel Places To Stay Lodgings Accommodations
Hosts: Andrea and Laura Lastrucci
Address: Bed & Breakfast "B&B La Magnolia", Via Mordini, 63 - 55100 Lucca, Tuscany, Italy
Activities/Attractions: Lucca is located 30 kilometers northeast of the Pisa airport and 85 kilometers west of Florence in Northern Tuscany. Lucca was an important junction in Roman times, you'll see it in the north-south grid pattern of main streets and in the elliptical plan of the "Piazza Anfiteatro" . To the north of Lucca lie the Apuane Alps with their famous marble quarries, spas and mineral water springs, streams, woods and caves.
A wealthy and colorful town that draws a more discerning tourist than Florence or Pisa, it is sufficiently off the beaten track to have kept its civility and reserve. Lucca is a city of merchants who know how to woo the visitor and the shopper, but the pace of life varies between slow and slower.
Imagine a beautiful little Tuscan town protected by massively thick 16th-century walls, featuring some of Italy's finest medieval and Renaissance architecture, superb dining, antique markets, classical and rock music festivals, easy access to stunning nearby villas in the surrounding hills and with endless beaches less than half an hour away. Lucca is one of Tuscany's best-kept secrets.
"La Magnolia is located right in the center of Lucca, a few blocks from everything you would want to visit. Laura and Andrea were very helpful orienting us to Lucca and pointing out the best places to eat and shop. Lucca is a great town with lots to see."
"We loved it, and what I liked best was even though we arrived late the owner had no problem coming back to let us in and took 30 mins to explain the WHOLE city to us and made us feel very welcome. Great place!"
"Laura, the manager, gave us excellent advice on how to enjoy the beauty and spirit of Lucca- No book could give you such a great entry point into the soul of a city. Our room was wonderful-quiet, looking out onto a green courtyard- We biked all around the city with bikes she loaned us which is a definite must-do."
"The atmosphere was elegant & relaxing. The staff was very helpful & informative. (thank you Laura!) She made our stay a great experience."
"Very comfortable stay, perfectly situated in Lucca's inner town, with historic surroundings. Very nice breakfast and excellent service."
"I would go back in a minute, and we are already thinking about it."
"La Magnolia is just what you want when traveling; it is clean, quiet, aesthetic, and well located with helpful, non-intrusive hosts."
"This was my favorite stay in a 2 week trip through Italy. I found it from the Rick Steve's guidebook, emailed them and got quick and complete responses."
General Information: Welcome to Bed & Breakfast La Magnolia ... located in the historical centre of Lucca in the garden of the sixteenth century Palazzo Bottini. Lucca is a small provincial town rich in history, tradition and culture, but also a place of interest for high quality tourism. Tourism in Tuscany means Florence and its beauties, the Chianti area, Siena and Piazza del Campo, Pisa and the leaning tower, San Gimignano and Lucca, which is beautifully located among hills and country between the sea and the mountains.
Entering the palace you cross the elegant courtyard and reach the garden. Having left behind all city noises you might be woken in the morning by songbirds. This particular location will provide you a nice and quiet accommodation and at the same time the possibility of taking part in city life. The owners' kindness will be available to satisfy and guide you to the discovery of the town and its culture.

"This is one of our favorite stays for the whole trip. The room is comfortable, spacious with a clean en-suite bathroom. Andrea is a very friendly host, spending a while on introducing us the surrounding, even printing us the train timetable and booking the dinner."
"I must say, this b&b Magnolia was a real find, because there was a country feel and total peace right in the middle of the City of Lucca! I highly recommend this charming little inn (only 5 rooms). Next time we go to Lucca, I will book there in the first place!"
"A great location right in centre of Lucca, inside the city walls."
"I discovered this cozy and charming B&B in the garden of a magnificent Palazzo and as soon as you arrive, you feel totally at ease. I really had a wonderful time and my room was graciously decorated and very clean with a nice bathroom. I highly recommend this B&B to everyone who travel to Lucca."
"The location is excellent - just a short walk from the amphitheatre and from lots of restaurants and cafes. All in all, a very pleasant stay."
