We enjoyed seeing Puccini’s home and artifacts, letters, plus photos from his life. The descriptions are in English and Italian. The room set up like the garrett in La Boheme was fascinating. Our visit made us want to learn more about his life.

Apart from visiting Lucca for the historic city and architecture its a must to visit the Puccini Museum to appreciate the man and his achievements delivering opera to all parts of the world. This a must. Lots of cafes and restaurants in the city.

It’s a surprising little museum with many of Puccinis personal effects on display. You need to know a little about his life to fully appreciate the photos and letters Well worth the visit if you are an opera lover
