Villa Borghese is located a short distance from Lucca city centre.
Lucca also known as ‘the city of one hundred churches’, is very rich in Italian history as it is here where Florentine noble families spent their summers. The city walls that we see today date back to the 17th century and have been restored with 4km of parkland, which makes for a lovely place to walk, cycle or have a picnic.
Presently, Lucca is an attractive location to reside because it is well connected to local motorways and airports and it is found in close proximity to the Tuscan Coast, Versilia and Florence. The city also offers many activities, events and wonderful restaurants.
