The Italian Index, Part 5: Lucca

According to’s latest Hotspot Index , Italy was the most searched for country by international property buyers, with Italy making up 21 out of the top 50 destinations.

This month, we take a look at the properties available in Italy’s various regions. We’re rounding off our look at Italian property by sampling some of the delights of Lucca. Located in Tuscany, Lucca is a stunning Renaissance town with walls that date back centuries. The city’s history and culture attract tourists, but this is a far quieter place than Florence or Pisa; a well-kept secret in one of Italy’s best property regions. Don’t believe us? Puccini thought so: he lived there for the first 22 years of his life.
