One of the strangest sights in Lucca is this fifteenth-century home, with a battlement tower surmounted by oak trees whose roots have grown into the room below.

Loved looking round alone, but sad that more people were not enjoying this wonderful collection of art and archaeology. Please visit! It is a treat

On the day we visited we practically had the place to ourselves. Maybe it's because people don't have the time or that it's a bit away from the busy centre area, but this museum has a lot to offer. Combined ticket for here and Palazzo...More
