Stunning view of the lake, beautiful gardens! Be careful when booking tickets for ballet. We thought it was going to be a professional ballet dancers, but it was ballet students and unfortunately it was slightly disappointing!

The views are great and the buildings (a ship of sorts included) make this a must see for any visitor to Gardone.

The Vittoriale degli Italiani is a hillside estate above the town of Gardone Riviera, and overlooks Lake Garda in Italy. I went there many years ago and found it amazing .... It is where the Italian writer Gabriele d'Annunzio lived from 1922 until his death in 1938. Prince of Montenevoso, was an Italian writer, poet, journalist, playwright and soldier during... More

We took the little train from the hotel which also gave us a good view of the hotels and other buildings along the coast before it turned up the hill. The old town is beautiful, and worth the trip for this alone. We did not have a lot of time to spare at Il Vittoriale, so didn't pay to see... More

Quirky, interesting, even bizarre. Worth a visit, especially with a 20 percent discount card.(available at the tour office opposite the ferry ticket kiosk.)

Interesting place to visit. Picturesque grounds and some strange things to see --also the history of the man who lived here.

A must if you are staying in Gardone. Perched high above the lake the house itself is absolutely amazing, like no other you have ever seen. The Gardens are fascinating and very odd indeed-they include the Prow of a warship built into the landscape.

This place has to be seen to be believed!! However, if you have limited mobility then do not attempt the gardens. The house is amazing, never seen anything like it, what a man to have collected so many things! And to be on a ship in the garden!!

This truly was an incredible place to visit. I had not heard about Gabriele d'Annuzio prior to visiting and found him to be a fascinating character. The tour of his home was better than I expected...we didn't have too much of a wait and our guide spoke excellent English and had a great sense of humour. Well worth the extra... More

This was an easy bus ride here from Milan, Italy. Just under 2 hours drive to the largest of the lakes in Italy. We had perfect weather to walk around and enjoy the gardens and "RN PUGLIA" ship that was built in the ground- no water... very cool. The house tour was given in English for those that speak English,.... More
