There are places that have an undefinable,unique feel to them; something that only certain people can sense.The Hotel Universo is one of these places. L’Universo is one of the historical monuments of 19th-century Lucca,with a central location, opposite the eighteenth-century theatre and the splendid Ducal Palace. The rooms offer spectacular views out over the cathedral and the tree-lined Piazza Napoleone or Piazza del Giglio. The Palazzo was built some time in the 16th century and became a hotel in 1857, when guests included great names from Italian and international opera and theatre, who were playing at the theatre just opposite. The building still has the rooms, elegant salons and peacefully elegant atmosphere of times gone by.
