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.

Stayed at L'Antica Bifore for a week in October 2016 with my wife. Our hosts, Stefano and Brid, made our stay wonderful. We were made to feel at home upon our arrival. Great local information concerning Lucca and local "customs" was supplied by the hosts which made our stay highly enjoyable and easy. Breakfast each morning was lovely. Accommodation was...

This b and b is on the main shopping street in Lucca, a beautiful historic building - the view from the rooms was an extreme close up of the church facade - not something you often get to see! The owners were very kind and couldn't have been more helpful. It was particularly good as we were travelling as a...

We could not have asked for better hospitality. They are in a wonderful location and the rooms are clean. Staying here gave us a little more cozy feel than staying in a hotel with a lot of rooms. We would definitely go back if in the area. Thanks for a wonderful stay:)

Very centrally located. Easy walk to Puccini concerts; easy walk to the excellent restaurants recommended by Bride and Stefano (who used their charm and connections to get us reservations on busy rainy weekend!); and easy walks to wall and Piazzas. Of course, the inner city location means inner city noise... and a charming old historic building means a long flight...

A friend and I stayed here October 1-4 2016. Not far from the train station and right in the heart of the beautiful city! Stefano and Brid were the perfect host and hostess. They helped with recommendations on where to eat, what to see and were even so kind to call for a taxi for our trip to the train...

Terrific location. Not too long a walk from train station (easy...~ 10min) and convenient to anywhere within the walled city. Loved staying in historic building dating back to 1400s. Hosts had completely renovated the apt. when they bought some years ago, revealing brick, old beams, and high ceilings. Unique ambience within historic setting. Nice breakfasts. Also found hosts flexible relative...

L'Antica Bifore is a B&B in a typical Lucca medieval tower located in the heart of the city and we loved staying there. The building and rooms are very atmospheric and they have been beautifully restored and decorated by the owners. It is located on the first floor of the tower and there is a flight of stairs but this...

Stefano and Brid are excellent hosts and gave us a hand with our large amount of luggage when we arrived. The bedroom overlooked the main shopping street and it was incredible to believe we were sleeping in a place that was over 500 years old (in NZ we think anything over 100 years is old). Lucca is a stunning walled...

We stayed with hosts Stephano and Brid in their lovely B&B the beginning of October. From the time we stepped inside, we felt we were part of an extended family in Italy. The rooms are situated around the dining/welcome/sitting area. We arrived with no plans and within minutes had dinner reservations and details on that evening’s Puccini concert. A must...

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.
