The Hotel Ilaria is situated just inside the medieval walls of Lucca so in a perfect position for enjoying this lovely town and exploring Northern Tuscany. Sample the delicious food the city has to offer, explore the medieval castles and fortresses and find a historical gem at the antique market (every third Sunday of the month). Take a stroll through the charming streets of Luca, see the historic palazzi and piazzas and stop off at quaint cafes and bars along the way.

The comfortably furnished Classic rooms are located in the main building, formally the stables of the Villa Buonvisi, whereas the stylish Superior rooms and Suites are in the Residenza dell'Alba, a historic building created from a medieval tower and located opposite. Breakfast is served in the light and airy conservatory and the hotel also has a terrace with sun loungers and a hot tub where you can relax after a busy day's sightseeing.

Northern Tuscany & Montecatini

North Tuscany is home to two of Italy’s most famous cities: Florence and Pisa. Here, art galleries, palazzos and Michelin-starred restaurants vie for your attention.

For something a little more laid-back, consider staying in a smaller city. Little Lucca comes ringed by Renaissance walls. Cycle or walk them for long-range views over both the city and Tuscan countryside.

Meanwhile, the thermal waters of Montecatini have been reeling in day trippers since Roman times. Explore the art nouveau Terme Tettuccio before hopping on the oldest funicular in the world. It takes you up to Montecatini Alto – a medieval village with spectacular views of North Tuscany.
