This historical property is beautifully kept by Alice and her associates, and Alice was the most gracious host. She made check in a lovely personal experience, making us coffees and giving a map of the city with all her suggestions for food and activities. Suggestions that we took full advantage of and had a wonderful time experiencing. I greatly recommend staying at this beautiful property, it was a delight!

The L'Antica Bifore was the perfect stay in Lucca. One feels as though they live in Lucca, as the guest house is in the heart of town near everything, through an old door that leads upstairs to the residence. The interior is absolutely beautiful, maintained in a period style with furniture, murals, artwork and every element consistent with an elegant historic residence from the 1200s. The room was comfortable, with stained glass windows, heating and air conditioning, and every detail thought through. Alice and Allessandro are the owners and hosts, and they pay attention to every detail and are attentive to every need. There are so many thoughtful touches and everything is clean and well maintained. I recommend getting the breakfast, as Alice puts together a beautiful box of pastries, juices, fruits and coffee. She also made suggestions for sightseeing, dining, apertivo, and wine tasting, and diligently helped us with reservations. Allessandro manages one of the top restaurants in town and he reserved a table on the piazza one cool night with blankets and overhead heaters making for a comfortable night out. The guest house is in the middle of everything with plenty of shopping and restaurants and food vendors all around. There is free parking outside town, or one can pay for parking inside and walk to the guest house. If driving, I recommend paying to park to unload/load bags nearer to the guest house, and then parking in the free parking outside the city walls.

Best Hosts. In the middle of historic center.
Alessandro and Alicia malted away any leftover anxiety from coordinating luggage drop-off and off-site parking. They are true naturals as hosts. The bathroom, quite small of course, still could have used a small table or chest to put our toiletries on. Otherwise, we were most comfortable. Our huge window opened up to the basilica directly across the narrow active street. Our hosts helped us locate bikes, make suggestions, and shared a most special restaurant to dine, one where they both are employed as manager and server.
