The small town of Lucca makes every visitor feels at home immediately. If you follow a language course here, you will find the ideal combination of true Tuscany, geniality and a dolce vita lifestyle. The city with its more than 80,000 inhabitants is hidden behind imposing Renaissance walls and its cobbled streets, beautiful squares and shady promenades are perfect to explore by foot. Many people do a day trip to Lucca from Florence, but the city itself is also a perfect travel destination where there is enough to do. At the end of the day, historic cafés and restaurants invite visitors to relax with a glass of Lucchesi wine accompanied by some rustic antipasti. Don’t forget to explore the hills on the eastside of Lucca on a day off. They form the home of historic villages with beautiful villas. Also the city of Montecatini Terme, whith its world-famous thermal baths, is an attractive destination for day trips from Lucca.
