The building, which dates from the 12th century, housed a girls boarding school in the 1800's. Closed for the last ten years, the site was recently restored to its former splendor and prepared for its present use thanks to the Iacopini family who has been its proprietor for many years. This work has left unaltered the original structure of the building, and has successfully created an elegant, charming residence in the heart of Lucca's historic city center. Known today as the Palazzo Alexander, the residence encompasses four floors of rooms and apartaments, all with modern, private bathrooms - some with whirlpool baths. In addition, all rooms contain such conveniences as satellite television, telephones, hairdryers and computer hook-ups. The dÚcor of the residence reflects the noble Lucchese style with the use of antique wood floors in all the bedrooms and fine marble and other local stones in the bathrooms, lobby and common rooms.
