Great piece of history!

We enjoyed the Palazzo Pfanner interior, as much as they allow the public to see. It is still occupied by the family so much of it is off limits. There are a few exhibits of... read more

The garden of Palazzo Pfanner is truly one of the most beautiful grounds you could imagine. An amazing sight when looking down from the walk along the Lucca's City Walls. The gardens, with its majestic statues, is a modern-day wonder of tranquillity.

The house has an interesting collection of medical instruments and a few typical rooms that were at best only moderately interesting. The gardens are very well kept and are the best part of the visit. The garden statues of Greek or Roman gods are quite impressive.

We enjoyed the Palazzo Pfanner interior, as much as they allow the public to see. It is still occupied by the family so much of it is off limits. There are a few exhibits of medical wears from the days gone by. Some other exhibits including a fully stocked kitchen form back in the day. The gardens are one of... More

On our second visit here, just visited the garden this time. There was not as much colour as earlier in the year bug still a peaceful oasis.

After seeing multiple historical churches inside the Lucca walls, it was a pleasant change to see and actual family home. If you are in the medical or dental field be sure to allow time to view the historical ( and scary) medical and dental equipment displays in several of the palazzo's rooms. The gardens are also a visual treat.

Like other reviewers, I would love to see more of the palace. In time the family may have the resources to make that possible. The garden and palace are both beautiful. The garden can be viewed in a limited fashion from the wall surrounding Lucca.

Peaceful garden. Beautifully manicured and great photos with the tower in the background. I wish I had taken a book with me, as I definitely could have soaked up the peacefulness of the garden sitting on one of the many benches.

Interesting and peaceful house, surrounded by manicured gardens. Disappointing that the house is limited to a few rooms mainly displaying medical instruments from the 18th century.

The garden is beautiful, and very cool on a hot day. I would have liked to have seen more of the villa itself- there were only a few rooms open to the public and I would liked to have seen more. There is a collection of surgical instruments which is interesting but it would have been great to see a... More
