The palace itself has seen better days yet is a perfect example of the sublime opulence of the era. A great deal of the palazzo was closed and therefore we missed much of the exhibitions. What was available was interesting if not entirely overstated! Not necessarily worth a visit.

A rare treat, the lavishness of this house is overwhelming. The humour of the former occupants is very apparent. There is much to see in Lucca but fit this one in - its worth it

Really interesting museum within a museum. It was empty of people when we visited , not sure if it is usually so quiet. The frescos and decorations are beautiful.

This palace is well worth visiting for its impressive frescoed rooms, its painting collection, and its decorated period rooms. It's a national museum, so you can get a joint ticket with the Villa Guinigi, on the other side of town. This place gives you a good idea of how the local aristocrats used to live.

I'm in agreement with most of the reviewers. Deplorable gardens, but I don't think they intended to make gardens part of the tour. Just a shame, as they could be pleasant. The palazzo itself is quite interesting, with lovely rooms, beautifully painted, and interesting paintings (if you're in to that sort of thing). A few astounding ballroom sized rooms -... More

This museum is easy to get to and is quite astonishing in what it contains. It was virtually empty on the day we visited and you have the whole place to yourself, yet it has some of the treasures of the town and it is all there, right in front of you. It is not like in Florence, where the... More

The palace is filled with paintings and furniture from the 17-18th centuries. The rooms are beautifully decorated and it's interesting to see how the rich and powerful lived.

A hidden treasure of a museum giving a glimpse into the life of a wealthy Lucchese family. Stunning rooms sumptuously decorated and hung with tapestries and paintings. Three favourite paintings by Bronzino, of Cosmo di Medici and two Di Medici children

What a wonderful find - although not so easy to find the entrance! This Palazzo has many rooms to wander through and see how people used to live. If you combine it with the Palazzo Pfanner you will have seen a wonderful palace (Mansi) and a wonderful garden (Pfanner) and really made the most of a visit to Lucca.
