Florence (livorno), Italy

Lucca Family Villa

Discover exquisite architecture, timeless elegance and a rich history in the ancient walled town of Lucca and the nearby hillside villa of one of its most illustrious families. Behind fortified walls—now a tree-lined promenade—Lucca maintains its Renaissance-era character and ambience. Explore its narrow streets, cobbled lanes and handsome plazas that include Piazza Bernardini before driving to the hillside estate built by Count Cosimo Bernardini in the 1700s as a weekend hunting retreat. One of the count's descendants will escort you through the villa's expansive gardens where you'll enjoy a toast while hearing stories of the family whose prominent role in Lucca dates to the 14th century.
