unbelievable location
nov 2019
The winding road up to this unusual hill town is amazing with spectacular views. The unusual little village with the view of the 4-5 stories looking at the valley and only 1-2 stories looking at the mountain is just striking.

Beautiful village with spectacular castle and views
apr 2018 • Páry
We walked to Lucchio Alto from the house we were staying in at the even smaller village of Zato, which is on the other side of the hill. It's a brilliant walk along a narrow mountain path, which opens up to reveal fabulous views of the houses of Lucchio Alto, clinging to the hillside. We walked through the village to the castle at the peak (La Rocca). It's a steep climb, especially when the path runs out and you're scrambling over bare rock, but the panorama from the top is truly amazing. There is a bar and ice cream shop in the main square of Lucchio Alto, but it isn't always open. Parking is on the approach to the village, opposite the washing pool. Take plenty of water and a camera and sketchbook.

Do Not Miss Lucchio Alto and Rocca
aug 2017
After a winding adventure on the narrow asphalt route towards Lucchio Alto we were fully rewarded. Lucchio Alto is the second smallest village in Italy and its aprox. 80 inhabitants which is literally suspended on the rocky hill beneath Rocca fortress. Rocca needs immediate support for conservation since the walls are falling apart. The view from Rocca is breathtaking so a little effort to climb towards the fortress will be well rewarded. Ask locals if you'll get lost on the narrow streets of Lucchio Alto. Parking place is right before the villages or along the asphalt route toward the village. One hour would suffice to discover both the village and Rocca di Lucchio fortress.

Unbelievably spectacular
okt 2016 • Priatelia
Being with a large group of artists, Lucchio was one of the highlights of a stellar retreat in Tuscany. Just everywhere you look there are outstanding vistas and fascinating 'street' scenes. The clamber up to La Rocca is worthwhile, being able to have the full 360 panorama. How easy would it have been to defend.
The upsetting thing however is that these beautiful villages are doomed to fall into disrepair as the inhabitants just get older and fade away and the young ones have moved on. It's understandable but nonetheless tragic.
And don't worry about any of the negatives, like the drive or the parking, just go there and enjoy. It's wonderful.

Peaceful walk through a sleepy village to the castle ruins at the top of the hill with views for miles around. Lots of cats.

Hill top village, not much more then that.
aug 2015 • Páry
Drive up and down is narrow, with places with few passing points, and quite dramatic drops in places. Village is car free so park up at road end. Village is not deserted but quite thriving with people around and the small cafe/bar open, perhaps it is just the time of year? Castle is at the top, but I would describe it more as a few walls with no information or historical context, great views from here though. This region is full of mountain villages each with is own character and interest, to singling Lucchio out as special seem to neglect the other villages.

Nice views
aug 2015 • Rodinné
Had fun driving up the mountain. Park just before you arrive in town, or in our case at the cemetery a bit down since the parking was full. We managed to climb La Rocca with a 2 and a 5 year old. Coming down was a bit more adventurous but manageable when doing it piano piano. :-) On top we enjoyed magnificent views. One bar in town with democratic prices and friendly service.

The town time forgot

Driving to Lucchio wasn't so bad. You walk to the rocca. It was fun climbing and taking pictures of isolated homes and the scenery. Many cats around. We only saw two ladies in the whole town.

The most unusual sight in Tuscany
apr 2015 • Páry
We found a brochure in the lobby of our hotel listing 25 unusual sights of Tuscany and the town of Lucchio is one of them. The town sits on top of a mountain. The drive up the mountain is not for those afraid of heights or who do no like mountain driving but it is well worth it. These buildings--four and five stories tall--cling to the side of the mountain. The streets are too narrow for cars--there is a sort of parking area before you get into town. We were there on the Italian Labor Day and there were no people, vehicles, open stores--it was kind of eerie but also totally fascinating. It is well worth the drive both to see the town and to enjoy the truly breathing views from the town of Lucchio.

Amazing find
This was the highlight of our trip to Tuscany and the perfect antidote to the crowds of Florence.

We spotted some houses clinging to a cliff face high on a mountain top. So we decided to investigate. Looking up at them it was hard to think they could be lived in.

After the long and winding road up to Lucchio we were rewarded with the most stunning view imaginable. We made our way up to what was once a fortress on the tip of the mountain peek. It was absolutely magical in the spring sunshine. Almost other worldly. This feeling was increased by a huge bright green lizard on a dead tree trunk!

Despite the view from the fortress the really interesting bits were the houses that have been built on the almost sheer cliffs just below the old castle. We wandered around the streets peering into windows of houses that were empty and decaying.

Apparently in the 1930s there were 800 people in Lucchio - growing nuts in the groves, vegetables in the small gardens and hunting in the mountains. A few are still lived in over the summer. But it's so sad to see 400 year old houses on the brink of collapse. Some of them look like they would make incredible holiday homes. Or even small hotel retreats. And what a retreats they would be!

Indeed there are plenty of signs advertising houses for sale. Maybe tourists looking for an Italian idyll should step in before it's too late. It can't be more than a few years before many fall into the valley a thousand feet below.

Go and see Lucchio for yourself. Maybe put in an offer! A truly fascinating place....
