What a charming bed and breakfast, located in the heart of old town Lucca. I was not expecting it to be so centrally located and in the midst of where everything happens! We stayed there for 6 nights. Antica Bifore is located in one of the few tower buildings still left standing in Lucca. The street, Fillungo, is the primary...

L'Antica Bifore has been lovingly restored withTuscan flair and is the perfect location for your Lucca holiday. It is very central inside the walls and The Main Street is at the front door. Walking around the corner brings you to the SanMichelle square. Your hosts Brid and Stefano have paid attention to every detail to ensure you have a fabulous...

My sister and I spent 4 nights at L'Antica Bifore and wished we could have stayed longer! Stefano and Brid welcomed us and continued throughout our stay to be helpful and thoughtful - they arranged a cookery course and wine tasting as well as suggesting great places to eat and things to do. We loved our beautiful room with the...

This hotel was perfect for us. We only had one night as we were taking the train the next morning to Cinque Terre. It is very centrally located and the hosts are wonderful. Honestly, our room was rather small but since it was only one night, it didn't really matter. My husband managed to leave our key in our door...

We had the pleasure of staying at the L’Antica Bifore Guesthouse for four nights recently. Our room was located off of the main street. It was large, quiet, and very comfortable with decor that matched the feeling of staying in this 14th century tower. The breakfast room was more communal than most because it had one large table at which...

This is the perfect bed and breakfast! The rooms are charming & beautiful, the breakfast is excellent, and the hosts are kind and welcoming and willing to plan activities, give restaurant recommendations, and recommendations of sights to see and things to do while in Lucca. This is one of the best hotels I stayed at while traveling in Italy. We...

What a wonderful time in Lucca. Brid and Stefano were wonderful, they were very accommodating and hospitable while also giving us our privacy. The breakfast that they provided was ample and delicious. The location on the main shopping street was superb. We had easy access to restaurants and shops. Taking a walk around the wall is a must. I would...

We found L'Antica Bifore by chance and I am glad we did. We spent in here one night only but I wish we could have stayed longer.

The owners of Antica Bifore were very helpful . We enjoyed our stopover. Be aware that driving into the city is probably not your best option. Park outside the walls and carry your luggage . The building is fascinating and is in the perfect location.

Exclusive guest house located on the main street inside the walls of the historical city centre. Typical noble "lucchese" residence with coffered ceilings and original tiled floors. Part of the XIV century Torre del Travaglio, one of the three medieval towers of Lucca. L’Antica Bifore has four spacious matrimonial suites, La Divina, Beatrice, Dante, and Paradiso. Each is different in its architectural shape and form, with beautiful frescoes and unique pieces of period furniture. We can organise wine tasting, cookery classes with award winning chef Carlo and art and craft sessions.
