On the occasion of Lucca Comics & Games 2019, my best friend and I spent 3 days in Tuscany. We stayed at the Grand Hotel Francia & Quirinale in Montecatini Terme, a 4-star hotel just a few kilometres from Lucca.
Already at check-in, we were surprised by the warm welcome of the staff and the family atmosphere that you can breathe all around the hall. Although it is a top-notch, elegant hotel with ancient furniture, the professionality and courtesy of the staff made us feel at home immediately.
We stayed in a Deluxe room, furnished with rich fabrics and soft velvets and illuminated by a constant brightness. In the morning we enjoyed a delicious continental breakfast, with a great buffet set up in the restaurant lounge, in delicate liberty style.
After a full day at the Lucca Comics & Games, we came back to the hotel, hungry and quite tired. And what's better than a hearty and tasty Tuscan dinner to get back on your feet? And so, we did it: we had dinner at the Central Restaurant, where they prepared delicious vegan dishes for me. A wonderful surprise!
Given the autumn season, we couldn’t use the hotel pool, but it looked really inviting ... another, great reason to return to the Grand Hotel Francia & Quirinale, maybe in the summer!
