Maison Gentile
An unforgettable stay in Lucca

The B&B Maison Gentile is right within the majestic city walls of the 1500s. Our structure is located in the heart of Lucca between Piazza Napoleone, Piazza San Michele and only 200 meters from the Cathedral of San Martino and represents the ideal solution for those who want to enjoy full of the wonders of the second most famous "fortress city" in Europe. Maison Gentile is the right place if you want to immerse yourself in the ancient village of Lucca. The historic center has remained almost intact in its original aspect, thus being able to include various valuable architectures, monumental buildings, towers, and many other historic finds, "silent witnesses" of the distant Renaissance..

Let yourself be carried away and observe the ancient shops of the city and their beautiful signs, the refined works with attention to the smallest details by the first Lucca merchants and perfectly preserved by those who, in those same shops, today carry out a completely different activity from the original one. Enter from one of the access doors of the very special Piazza Anfiteatro: it will be a great emotion! The Amphitheater is a beautiful example of the metamorphosis that has taken place over the centuries of the customs and traditions of population. The elliptical shape was built by the ancient Romans, and used for public shows, but in the Middle Ages it became a place to meet to discuss the problems of the city, to then be progressively filled with buildings variously used for storage, as a armoury, or even as a prison!

Today it is full of characteristic places where you can stop to sip good wine and watch the performances of street artists. Lucca is also named "the city of a hundred churches”, made famous by the beautiful Volto Santo and the extraordinary mosaics of San Frediano. Do not forget that the B&B Maison Gentile, thanks to its central location, is only 200 meters from Torre Guinigi and only 50 meters from Via Fillungo, famous for its luxury shops and boutiques, a good spot both for families and couples to get distracted from the monotony of daily life enjoying the typical Tuscan food or looking for fun. Lucca Comics and Games, Lucca Summer Festival, Christmas markets are just one example of the many events that the city offers throughout the year.

Art, culture and fun will involve you, leaving you with unforgettable memories. The B&B Maison Gentile is also easily reachable on foot from the train station, and the Galileo Galilei international airport of Pisa is just 25 minutes away by car.
