About Bed & Breakfast
Casa Alba, established in 1998, was one of the first B&B to open in the town of Lucca.
The owner, Alba Pracchia, returned to her home town after living for several years in Holland and Australia. She then decided to transform her apartment into a B&B in order to keep her passion for foreign languages and cultures.
Casa Alba, situated right in the heart of the city, on Via Fillungo, offers a wonderful location for it’s guests. Via Fillungo is a major pedestrian street with beautiful shops and bars.
You can walk anywhere in a few minutes. You can visit museums and historical monuments, restaurants and the lovely promenade on top of the city walls.
The beautiful church of S. Frediano and Piazza dell’Anfiteatro are just around the corner. Piazza S. Maria, only 200m away from Casa Alba, is where you can find a tourist information centre, banks, and bicycle rentals. A bicycle is a wonderful way to discover Lucca. It is a wonderful experience to ride through the medieval streets, or along the river Serchio into the beautiful country side very near the city.
