This garden is quite hidden away a short distance away from the town of Capalbio but it is worth seeking out for a quite unusual and unique experience. As you enter the gardens, you don't really know what to expect. A short walk up the path towards the first sculpture and you are greeted by an array of mosaics and... More

I'm not into modern arts, but I have to say that this place was really fantastic and unique. It was like nothing that I had seen before. We drove here from Siena, and it took almost 2 hours and 130 kms, but it was definitely worth it.

Very pleasant tour to see spectacular pieces of art. With a very interesting heritage. You cannot miss. You will not believe to your eyes. Very peculiar open air exibition.

I'm a Gaudí freak so this place was a must! I loved it, the atmosphere is magical and the artist who created this place is a genious. Shame though it's open only in the afternoons: it's be less crowded for sure if it had extended timetables. I wish there were guards controlling the audience: despite for example the "no climbing"...

This was an experience that I will never forget! The sculptures are amazing, there is no other word for it. Yes, it was a little tricky to find and I agree with some other reviewers that some information on each piece would have been interesting but to be honest it really didn't matter. €12 was a fair price to pay...

The tarot garden is the creation of Niki de Saint Phalle where she could better express herself, in my point of view. It is worth a visit, and it is worth driving there for a dreamy day out even if you are 50 km away. It is a large garden where the artist, in collaboration with her husband, an artist... More

I've been to the Tarot Garden several times as it is quite extensive and can't all be taken in at once. Nikki de St Phalle was a remarkable sculptress who was able to share her inner world with others through magnificent manifestations of unbelievable dimensions. I enjoyed her interpretations of the major arcana of Tarot, most specifically, the Empress, which... More

Expensive, buggy and yet it is pretty amazing to think one person spent so many years making these crazy structures.

Fantastic, so unique and such a lot of magical inspiration and hard work. !!! Just about the right size to get lost in and yet not spread out over too wide an area. Be careful to go down all the paths as it can be easy to miss hidden things. I loved the tower and the empress the best. Don't... More

Nikki de St Phalle's Tarot Garden near Capalbio in Tuscany is a splendid sight for jaded eyes. The huge mosaic figures are delightful to walk through and enter, a whimsical land of color and light. After a first walk-through, one begins to think more deeply about the ideas, workmanship, and design of the spectacular garden and still marvel at the... More
