Located about 3 miles from the city walls of Lucca, Villa Bongi is a lovely getaway from the city crowd. The old mansion’s pink walls pop out in contrast to the green hills and olive groves it is nestled in. Guests can dine al fresco in the terrace’s shade or eat inside the grand villa by the fire. Try Villa Bongi’s homemade pasta with unique, seasonal toppings like chestnut pappardelle with wild boar ragout and cream of potatoes or squid ink spaghetti made with squid, orange, and wild fennel. Reservations are recommended.
