The formal gardens are beautiful with great statues. The palazzo is very impressive with a very good collection of artworks and a variety of room decorated in different periods. 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. Part of the palace is open to the public, however the gardens with the statues are the reason to visit. So serene. Lots of photos to be taken when the flowers are... More

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

I really echo the previous review as my husband and I were surprised and disappointed at the small size of the garden and didn't feel that it was 9 euros well spent. We could have saved our money and viewed the garden from the walls as there was nothing extra to see from inside. The complete garden can be viewed... More

When in Lucca, you cannot miss this jewel. We saw the Palazzo Pfanner from the walls of Lucca and the gardens looked beautiful. We went into the house which was very interesting, especially the rather macabre collection of medical instruments and the enormous kidney stones! The true amazing feature of the house are the gardens and the lemon trees in... More
