A Journey Through The Eras
A harmonious destination in a timeless place, Grand Universe Lucca is a historic hotel bringing the grace of the past into the present.
Like the city it calls home, Grand Universe Lucca embodies a vivid blend of history, from antiquity through contemporary times. The building has evolved over the millennia, from a glassblower’s atelier in Roman times, to a majestic palazzo during the Renaissance, to a monumental hotel in the mid-18th century. Today, the hotel’s refined interiors masterfully blend timeless elegance and contemporary comforts, inviting guests to a graceful journey across the eras.
Located opposite the famous Teatro del Giglio opera, the hotel was a destination for musicians and artists from around the world. Grand Universe Lucca continues to build and evoke its strong ties with music. In the main hall, guests relax in-between their explorations at the Symphony Lounge, where a beautiful, classical piano anchors the space. Every afternoon, a pianist enlivens past eras with a live performance, creating a unique and enchanting atmosphere.
“Il Garbo Lucchese,” the Grace of Lucca, characterizes the Lucchesi way of life and the aura of the city. It describes a subtly elegant, kind, and mannerly way of thinking, acting, and behaving. Grand Universe Lucca’s courteous and intimate service reflects “Il Garbo Lucchese,” surpassing typical standards with a discreet, one-on-one approach.
