The gardens are beautiful, peaceful and quiet; you can relax seating there after walk in the city, enjoying smell of citrus trees and roses. The villa is nice, but interior is less impressive than the gardens. If you are not interested in the house you can get a good view of the gardens from the walls.

Stopped by here and was pleasantly surprised. As soon as I walked in, I could smell the citrus trees. I've never visited such a sweet smelling place! The statue's are quite interesting to look at, all with their own names.

This is a small villa in the heart of Lucca with a beautiful garden. You can walk up the gorgeous staircase and explore the first floor of the villa, which is furnished and has a display of old medical instruments (very interesting for my retired-doctor mother). We met the owner, Mr Dario Pfanner, who was as gracious as one would... More

The statues are amazing! The whole garden is amazing! Enjoyed the baroque style of gardens with the walls of bamboo. There is an incredible amount of thought put into the selection of plant material for colour, texture and the emotional inspiration. Again get there early as it opens and you have the whole place to yourself!

The garden an house here are lovely, although I would say that if you are not interested in the house you can get a good view of the gardens from the walls.

We went early and visited the gardens only sitting on a bench by the entrance to the cafe and toilet.Lovely , hot sunshine and the friendly girl in the admissions kiosk allowed me to go and buy some drinks and didn`t even charge me to go back in. Spent 3 hours there reading and occasionally hearing the shouts from the... More

Palazzo Pfanner is a wonderful example of a type and style of architecture in Lucca. The casa is beautiful and the gardens superb. I've long admired it from the walls of Lucca and was really interesting to see it in toto. I plan to take or advise any visitors there.

Based on recommendation of friends we went to the gardens here. They were lovely and picturesque but not extensive. We say a perfectly good view of these gardens from our bikes on the wall. Otherwise, unless I wanted a break in the shade in a nice italian garden, I would not pay the price of admission

We spotted Palazzo Pfanner from the walls of Lucca and determined to visit the gardens, which looked lovely from the walls. And lovely they are, small and perfectly formed, with great vistas everywhere you look within the garden. The Pfanners and those who lived there before them will have enjoyed everything about this garden, sitting in it, wandering about, listening... More
