Lucca, Italy as a base?

Jump to last reply

DH & I are planning a return trip to Italy in September 2013. We have stayed in Pienza and San Gimignano. For this trip, we are considering Lucca as a home base for 4 nights.

In doing a search here, I found lukewarm reactions to Lucca. Is it really a 'boring', 'deadly dull' town as some feel? Are there any Lucca fans who can tell me why they liked it? Recommendations for hotels or B&B's within the walls (under 200€)? Is there a good selection of restaurants?

Thanks so much!
