Subject: Re: Best area to stay in Lucca
Hi Barbara, Two years ago we stayed at the Hotel Rex in Lucca. It's just outside the city walls situated at Piazza Ricasoli 19 - 55100 Lucca. We liked it because the windows blocked out all traffic noise, there is a parking lot and it's next to a Gelateria for a late night ice cream fix. The hotel is currently quoting 130 Euros for a double with private bathroom. We stayed in the annex and, though it may not suit you, shared a bath with two other rooms.

Lucca is small enough that you can walk everywhere. Word of warning: if you bring a car into the walled town, you'll find yourself circling the same small streets again and again. As I recall, there is no parking on the streets though there are parking lots. Lucy, Toronto
