Lucca as a base?

Jump to last reply

I am new here. Spending most of my spare time going through back-posts.
We are going to italy for 2 weeks at the end of march.
Thinking of this.
Fly into rome. Rome for 3-4 nights
2-4 nights in venice or florence ( cant decide)

Then we found a farmhouse we are thinking of renting about 12k out of lucca.
Looks really nice and peaceful
We were thing of training to lucca, renting the farmhous, and using this as a base .
5-6 nights in lucca with a car for day driving trips. We really like driving and exploring

We dont know what to expect. Is lucca too small of a destination to base for 6 nights?
We like some touristy things , and dont want to complete isolate ourselves. My wife loves shops ...

I guess what I mean is...we definately like the idea of a smaller stay to get the feel of real italy, but this our first trip and we dont just want to be isolated in a farmhouse feeling cut-off.
Sorry if this is a vague question.
Would appreciate any and all thoughts
mike
