0.2km from Il Porcellino D'OroOur friends raced about their stay here in 2018 so once we knew we were headed to Lucca, we called up La Boheme to make a reservation. We booked several months in advance and had our choice of rooms. We selected Madame Butterfly, mainly because it said it was quiet. On the way in, I contacted Laura for driving directions and to reserve parking at the intown garage. If you are driving in, you need a small car. If our Opel Astra has been even an inch bigger, we would have scraped up Lucca’s walls. Luckily we just barely fit. Our google maps got extremely confused with the intown directions and we got overwhelmed with trying to drive through crowds of people. We eventually found it and sweet Laura came out and helped us with luggage and navigated us securely into the parking garage. Madame Butterfly is large and spacious. We had plenty of space to spread out and get cozy. Our bathroom had both a bathtub with a hand shower and a standing shower (that might be small for anyone over 6ft). It’s a beautiful room and even had a TV, something we didn’t have for the past 4 days in our Tuscan country house. We slept great at Madame Butterfly thanks to our very quiet room. It was hot in Lucca and we were so pleased with our air conditioner in the room. The afternoon sun comes right into Madame Butterfly and the curtains are not blackout curtains so the room gets very warm. I did wind up using my personal battery operated fan on the nightstand in the room to keep super cool at night. We enjoyed wandering the streets of Lucca with La Boheme as our home base. We had amazing dinners both nights: Buca di S Antonio and Da Pasquale. Both are absolutely amazing and require advance reservations that can be made online/via email. Da Pasquale is just a few doors down and definitely a must! Laura also gave great advice to rent bikes down the street at Pro+, which is nearby and has electric bikes that are super fun. Laura is a true host and her hospitality contributed to our positive experience. If we ever find ourselves in Lucca again, we will definitely stay there again!
