The gardens here are worth a visit, beautiful and interesting. The inside hopefully is on the docket for restoration because it really needs it.

The top floor was closed because someone was sick which seemed a bit of poor organization by those running the place - you pay to see it and then only get... More

A wonderful garden to wander in to get out of the major hustle of Lucca. Benches provide places to sit and enjoy the beauty of this lovely little garden.

You can view the gardens from the wall, however if you want to wanderthrough you pay a fee. This is a 17th centure palace with a grand staircase.

We certainly enjoyed going throughout this home. We just noticed it while walking the walls around Lucca and decided to take a look. We really enjoyed the gardens and the interior of the home. The history of the home is very interesting and is worth seeing if you are spending an extended time in Lucca.

Charming building and garden which is a sanctuary from the streets of Lucca within the walls surrounding. Well worth a visit.

The Palazzo Pfanner is an interesting piece of Lucca architecture and worth a visit. It has a beautiful garden and a great concert hall. When visiting Lucca I recommend checking an events calendar to see when a concert will be held here.

Much as I love exploring Tuscan cities, sometimes you need a bit of greenery and this beautiful garden provides it. Find a seat or bench and just relax for a while with the fountain tinkling in the background
