First got a glance of the garden when walking the walls, and decided to visit the place. The garden is really beautiful with the marbel statues and the nice fountain.

Beautiful and tranquil to wander in the gardens. Quite small, but beautifully kept. Lovely fountain. Gorgeous spot to take a rest in a shady corner. Not a huge amount open inside the palace, but worth the extra Euro.

You can't tour too much inside the building, but it's worth checking out to see what you can of the palace and to see the garden behind it - lovely setting

Just as Florence has its Boboli Gardens and Rome has the Villa Borghese, here is Lucca's little masterpiece. Beautifully kept gardens where you can imagine yourself in the 16th century, wandering amongst the fountains, the flowers and the statues. Love it.

We only did the gardens (which you can see from walking/cycling the city walls) but it is worth a visit and next time we intend to go inside too

We saw this lovely Palazzo when walking the walls and decided to pay a visit, and so glad we did too, they are absolutely magnificent. The landscaped gardens are beautiful and well-kept with lots of places to sit either in the sun or in the shade. The fountains and statues are picturesque and give a cooling atmosphere in the heat...

My husband wanted to see Palazzo Pfanner, so we went there. He and our youngest child went inside, our oldest child and I only went to the garden. It was a lovely garden with statues and a very nice fountain.

You get a good look at the villa and its garden as you walk along the town wall. I did walk through the garden- but do not think there is very much to see inside the villa. The view from the wall in my opinion suffices.

Gardens are beautifully designed and maintained and include areas to sit down and shade from the sun. Very photogenic and peaceful surroundings to spend time in. Inside there isn't a huge amount of rooms to explore but what was there was interesting. Recommend a visit to the gardens - fantastic place to experience!

Great to see the way of life (even if it is the rich) from days gone by. The gardens with the statues are magnificent and the surgical exhibits amazing, if a bit gory
