Lucca (Lucca) - " On the hills of the splendid city of Lucca, just 15 minutes by car from the city center, this historic villa is for sale. The property, dating back to 1700 and belonged to a noble family from Lucca, completely to be restored, retains the charm of a remote era. The imposing villa, of 1600 square meters, is distributed on four levels, whose various entrances allow a subdivision into several housing units. On the main floor, which is accessed via a double staircase, you can still see the ancient frescoes from which the old splendor of the mansion emerges. The second level is instead divided into two units, one reserved for servants, the other - convertible into a large hobby room / gym area - characterized by high sloping ceilings with very characteristic wooden beams. On the ground floor is distributed the area of the former cellars which can be converted into an additional leisure area or living area from which it is possible to enjoy the Italian garden which represents the entrance of the property. A park of 7,000 surrounds the imposing villa, whose distinctive feature is characterized by a terrace with ancient arches, reminiscent of ancient elegance.
Two outbuildings, which can be converted into comfortable annexes, complete the luxury property for sale. Inside the large park it is possible to build a spacious swimming pool."
Famous for its historical monuments, it is one of the few capitals to preserve the historic center, rich in ancient structures from various eras, completely surrounded by a sixteenth-century city wall as a whole intact and almost unchanged over the centuries. It is a remarkable city of art in Italy. The monumental historical center of the city has remained almost intact in its original aspect, thus being able to count various valuable architectures, such as the numerous medieval churches of considerable architectural richness (Lucca has even been nicknamed the "city of 100 churches", precisely because of the presence of numerous churches in its historical nucleus, consecrated and not, present in the past and now in the city), towers and bell towers, and monumental Renaissance buildings of fine stylistic linearity. The city also boasts suggestive urban spaces: the most famous is certainly that of Piazza dell'Anfiteatro, born on the ruins of the ancient Roman amphitheater by the architect Lorenzo Nottolini and unique in its architectural genre. The main artery of the historic city is the narrow and medieval Via Fillungo, which brings together the major commercial establishments of the city. Other suggestive squares are then Piazza San Michele, historical center of the city and Piazza San Martino, religious center where the famous Cathedral of San Martino stands. Piazza Napoleone (also called Piazza Grande by the Lucchesi), was commissioned by Elisa Baciocchi during her Principality, demolishing ancient medieval buildings including a church. Adjacent is Piazza del Giglio where the homonymous theater overlooks, (Teatro del Giglio), which is to be counted as a traditional theater. Precisely because of its immense historical and monumental richness, the proposal to include the Walls of Lucca in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites has recently been put forward.
Among the main cities of art in Tuscany, as a provincial capital, the city of Lucca offers the most varied services (from catering, to transport, to events), placing itself among the livable cities at all times of the year.
