Why choose Lucca?
Lucca is a small city filled with history and perfect for those who appreciate a small town feeling. The city is surrounded by a historical wall which means that a short walk is all it takes to get from one end of town to the other. The walls of Lucca are not simply a way to define the city limits, instead they offer a green oasis for the citizens of Lucca who use it as a park to run, cycle or just walk their dogs and chat with their friends. They also offer incredible views into the hidden city gardens of Lucca and out into the mountains not far away.
The city is ideally located to tour the numerous wineries, olive orchards and cheese-makers who have made the region famous or to pop over to the beach for the afternoon. And for those who crave a bit of the big city life every now and then, Florence, Pisa and Pistoia are all nearby making visiting easy and quick.
Koinè Center is located within the old town, in via dei Tabacchi, between Piazza Napoleone and Piazza San Michele, two of Lucca’s most popular squares. This part of the city still preserves the Italian typical essence thanks to its many stores, cafes and “trattorias”. It is also rich in history and traditional festivals, (some of them date back centuries) and often hosts a number of varied cultural events.
