Lucca is the birthplace of Puccini, writer of Italy’s most romantic opera’s such as La Boheme and Madame Butterfly; visiting Puccini’s house is on the top to do list of any visit to this city.

Just outside the city are many wonderful villas with gardens or parks that are a pleasure to explore; some of which are available for extraordinary wedding receptions.
Every third Sunday of the month an important antiques market is held in the Piazzas Antelminelli and San Giusto and on the last Sunday and proceeding Saturday of the month an arts and crafts market is held in the same spot.
The Wedding Hall of Lucca is one of the most impressive in the region of Tuscany. A magnificent stairway leads to an ornate gilded hall with silk lined walls, original antiques and a view over the private garden available for photos after. There are various choices on rooms depending on the size of your wedding party.
