This is simply the most magical place I have ever been. You lose track of time as you get lost in a world of colorful fantasy, a whole afternoon immersed in a surreal world. Inspired by Gaudi's style, this garden took the artist a couple of decades to complete. You definitely feel the spiritual and magical dreams of Niki de... More

I was completely blow away by this place. Do not, I repeat, do not miss it. The structures are so playful and inventive, and because the location is so remote, you become completely immersed in Nikki's imagination. Like stepping into a surreal fairy tale. I wish it were open all day instead of opening midday, but that's a small quibble.... More

I have visited twice, the first time 2 years ago and again a few weeks ago. Both times i was in awe.

I would not say that this is a must see for everyone, but if you are interested in modern art, it is a must see and if you are not interested in modern art, it is a must see just for the uniqueness of it all and the appreciation for what it took to construct what is here. It is... More

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
