The Hotel San Luca, run by the Zuccari family, is elegant and sophisticated, featuring a warm and familiar atmosphere. The building’s interior underwent a radical renovation. Consequently, the majority of what you will see is new, but the atmosphere is undoubtedly old world. The building most likely dates back to the mid-19th century. The style of the building was heavily influenced by the nearby Mattatoio, a former slaughterhouse designed by the great architect Ireneo Aleandri who also designed the city’s Teatro Nuovo theatre and Traversa Interna (interior passageway). Of particular interest is the beautiful interior courtyard with the Holy Wellspring, accessible from a spacious gallery that is similar to a cloister.
A coffee set exclusively designed for the hotel features Deruta’s Raphael-style decorations the tables linens and Sambonet cutlery, as well as the outside option in the good season, make the breakfast a special moment during the stay at san Luca. The restaurant is open for groups only. Reservations are required.
