Beautiful architecture, gorgeous gardens - all within the lovely walled city of Lucca. I'd love to have lived within this beautiful estate - I can only imagine the stories!

if you are interested in perfectly landscaped gardens, where you can find lemon trees, as well as bamboo grove, statues of Greek gods and Baroque fountains, this place is something for you. We rather appreciated Palazzo interior, where they are exposed ancient medical aids and scientific books, as well as family history who lived in the palace

We actually did not plan this into the itinerary and stumbled on it by accident, but it was a nice surprise. Palazzo is small and nothing special compared what you can otherwise find in Italy, France etc. But it was a nice experience for kids- not too big, but still interesting to explore. Garden is its main magnet- a nice... More

The "Palazzo" itself is a little plain, but the (surgical) displays were rather interesting. However, the garden was a sheer delight, where our group was served light refreshments in the shade. Worth visiting.

Descriptions of this palazzo make it sound like you could spend hours here, but really there's practically nothing to see. Granted I came to Lucca directly from Isola Bella in Lake Maggiore, which is pretty spectacular, but I believe I would have found this pretty paltry under any circumstances. The gardens are pretty but small, and there are literally five... More

We glimpsed this while biking the city wall (which we highly recommend!) and were easily able to find it. The palazzo is a beautiful little (only by palazzo standards) museum. I was surprised to find the Renaissance period kitchen right next to the ballroom was original. I can well imagine what a hoppin' beer garden this was in the late... More

This Palazzo is full of history in Lucca. The gardens are beautiful with benches and a bathroom. There is shade, sun and beauty. The apartment is nice and a quick visit. Short on time- pick the garden, skip the apartment.

I was expecting definitely more:/ The garden is really small, rather unkempt and really disappointing. Not worth 4.5 euros.

The gardens can be seen from the city walls , which are nice but nothing special. The house, well for what you see its not worth it , as you dont see much of the house at all.

The garden was wonderful to walk around with statues in among lemon trees and a large central fountain. Room to sit and enjoy and chat with friends. The house was interesting with a mix of this and that rather than a grand palace. My wife helpfully explained the purpose of the medical instruments while I shuddered. You need to go... More
