We didn't go into the gardens, but we had a great view from the walk on the ramparts. They were beautiful, and we didn't feel like we'd missed anything by viewing them that way.

The guests were invited to stay on after the concert and walk around the magnificent gardens full of sculptures and fountains - not normally open to the public

Enjoyed the garden with its lovely fountain, the house is unusual, but there are good photo opportunities.

The number of rooms to see in this Palazzo are very small in number, but enhanced when we visited by a young woman playing the piano in the main room. Otherwise a bedroom and small kitchen to see, along with some old medical instruments, and not much more. However, the gardens are absolutely superb with places to sit and appreciate... More

The gardens are stunning and the house is beautiful. There are benches in the garden and lovely statuary of Greek gods and godesses. Lemon and orange trees surround the walks and the fountain makes a lovely background for the ornamental flowers and shrubs. One of the best sights in Lucca!

Inside the beautiful walled city of Lucca lies a little gem, the Palazzo Pfanner. A great time to visit is in the heat of midday, there are quiet, shady corners to sit in and admire the garden, ornamental flowers, fountain and lemon tree lined pots and its statues.

I was looking for something to do in Lucca and my friend suggested I visit Palazzo Pfanner. The gardens are stunning and very peaceful. Worth taking your book and sitting on one of the many benches and enjoying he smell of the citrus trees and the sound of the fountain. The ceiling in the house are amazing so remember to... More

After seeing multitudes of museums, Cathedrals, Duomos, and leaning towers, this was a nice little diversion. The gardens were the real draw. Beautiful and very peaceful. Nice to get away from all the tour crowds. Not a major draw, but as I said an island of peace much needed.

The garden was in full bloom and the lemon trees laden with ripe lemons which was a lovely stroll. The palazzo itself is a bit empty - some rooms have been set up to recreate the style of its heyday. Most of the display was of early 20th C medical instruments. Interesting if you like that sort of stuff (... More

We visited the Palazzo Pfanner not knowing what to expect. We had seen it many times from the city walls. We had even sat on the overlooking benches on the walls wondering what the place was supposed to be. However, seeing it from the walls is definitely not the same as seeing the true beauty of the place first hand.... More
