The
Experience

Lucca’s amphitheatre was built on Roman remains and, for two centuries, houses were built organically into its ancient walls. The first storey of three such houses comprises this small B&B – woven into one they make an irresistible whole – and if the position is special then the place itself is even more so, thanks to the generosity and graciousness of your hosts. Alex and Livia love their new enterprise and go out of their way to make your stay perfect. All is warm, elegant and cosy inside… original terracotta floor tiles beautifully waxed, pictures prettily hung, ceiling beams gloriously chunky. An old stone sink planted with succulents defines the reception space, a coffee table is laden with travel books, striped armchairs wait to be sunk into, and two little tables are laid with breakfast’s fresh fruits and homemade cakes, pastries and jams. Soundproofed bedrooms are at the front or the slightly larger back, two with balconies facing the piazza, all with air con and sweet bathrooms. Stay a week; for history, beauty, music, churches, and the lovely seaside from Cinque Terre to the Maremma.

Reviews

What a delightful place! Charming hostess, Livia, who went out of her way to provide us with an excellent holiday & couldn't have been more helpful. The location was brilliant, the restaurants she recommended exceptional, & we found the whole experience of being right in the centre of a fascinating walled city most enjoyable. We will definitely try to return.

We could not have had a nicer experience while staying at The B & B Arena in Lucca. The location is perfect, walking distance to everything and tucked inside the walls of Lucca. Our room was very comfortable and attractive. We had windows opening up to the square and tall beamed ceilings. Each room is unique. Alex and Livia were absolutely wonderful and helped us in so many ways; from transportation & shopping to dining. It is now one of our favorite places to have stayed in and hope that we can return again soon. We could not have felt more welcome.

Local points of interest from Alex Campedelli-Miller

  • B&B Arena is a testament to Lucca's rich heritage, in authentic Tuscan decor inside Roman walls and archways dating back to 171AD.
  • The perimeter of today's Piazza dell'Anfiteatro is the same as that of the 10,000 seat Roman Arena where gladiators and wild animals entertained the Romans.
  • Lucca is strategically positioned to make intra day excursions to Florence, Pisa, San Gimignano, Cinque Terre and many other destinations in the wine country or on the seaside.
  • Lucca has a very active entertainment calendar throughout the year including: Puccini music recitals and operas, today's world famous vocalists and music stars throughout the July festival, Comics&Games festival, antique and food markets.
  • We offer Tuscan bespoke holidays in combination with : www.vallebuia.it , one of Italy's most beautiful Tuscan seaside estates in the heart of the Maremma. Discover Tuscany's most beautiful region with its Islands reachable our skippered sailing yacht.
