well, exactly 227 steps from the house to the underpass in front of the wall door Porta S.Maria!
Borgo Giannotti is an evergreen vivid street, full of small shops.. perfect position for a trip into the historical centre but with all the comfort of a normal city street (you can park near the apartment..the city centre is almost a pedestrian area)
This is a third floor apartment (with elevator) with a big living room with kitchen, a corridor to the bedroom and the bathroom with shower. Everything is renovated and the heating is independent. The beds are in the bedroom and a double sofa bed in located in the living room. Sheets and towels are included.
The neighborhood is full of little shops! Next to the building you can find the typicall shops where you can buy warm bread, fresh fruits and vegetables, wine, cooked dishes.. but also a pizzeria with free delivery at home, chinese&japanese restaurant, kebab.. have you broken something? there's also an hardware store, hairdresser, bank, pharmacy, flower store. And guess? also a basket maker!
Last but not least: my parents live in a apartment on the forth floor and my mum is an english teacher.. she'll surely help you if you need something during your stay!
You can just walk to the city centre (5 min walk) or if you refer visiting the countryside or the see you can use your car (parked just near the apartment) or the buses that drive in the street and I'll show you where you can take them.
Lucca is a very safe place to live, and this quarter is very safe too. You can easily spend your evening in the city centre and come back safe home by walk at any time also during the night.
