We loved this city and only wish we could have stayed longer. We had some difficulty finding the B&B and were fortunate enough to run into a friend of the owner who was most kind to give us a lift. We were greeted warmly upon our arrival by a lovely young lady, who showed us to our room. It was... More

After two weeks staying here and meeting many folk at breakfast it would seem that most people who stay here do so either for one or two nights: I think these generally are people who only appreciate how much Lucca has to offer once they are here and have squeezed in a trip to this fine city between other places...

We booked this B&B primarily because it had a large room for four adults, had free parking, with breakfast included. It is inside the walls and walking distance to everything. Getting there can be a bit tough per usual for all Italian towns with one way, small streets. The service was the best aspect, and Irene in particular was fabulous.... More

Despite a sat nav we had a little difficulty finding the place. Top tip. Get near and then phone and the helpful staff will pop outside and wave to you. The place is lovely with exceptionally friendly staff. There is a small dining area and the breakfast was superb. The bedroom was spotless and bed comfortable. We would stay there... More

We stayed at B&B Il Seminario for 2 nights last month. The B&B is very nicely decorated with only 6 rooms I believe. We loved our room, it was on the top level with a very large space for the 2 of us. It was to accommodate a family of 4. The location was very centrally located near all the... More

Located in a quiet corner not so frequented by tourists but inside the city walls, this place has two extra pluspoints: private parking and a small garden area not only to have breakfast but open until late at night just to sit down and relax. Besides the normal double rooms, there are two "suites" on the top floor (we had... More

The B&B is in a very convenient location in the beautiful city of Lucca. Very clean, basic room. Sonia, at the front desk was so welcoming, helpful, and kind. She went out of her way to help with luggage, late breakfast and checkout. Thank you!

Il Seminario had everything we could have wanted in a quick stay in Lucca. We arrived before our room was ready, but the staff was happy to let us store our books and reorganize a little before going out. Once we were in our room it was comfortable and clean. The wifi worked and overall it was quiet. In addition... More
