The garden and the palace were designed in the Baroque period - you can feel here the atmosphere of the distant past. Tucked away they attract quite few tourists (most of those who reach Collodi head for the Pinocchio park with their children) so you...More

We weren't interested in going to the Pinocchio theme park but did go along to see this large garden complete with a butterfly house. It was a pleasant afternoon - the gardens are larger than first appears, not only with a walk up to an...More

Elaborate Italian Baroque garden with cascades and fountains, bamboo forest and a hedge maze, sculptures scattered in the park, a tiny zoo (goats, doves and exotic birds) and a butterfly house. Innovative design of the garden is prominently featured in Garden History books. I came...More

It is not an easy place to get to. Once off the motorway, it is still a fair distance away, off the beaten track. It is in a sleepy village with not much happening. The garden was supposed to be well known but the photos...More

I strongly encourage you to visit this park but: YOU NEED DRY WEATHER. This is must see architectural jewel of 18th century.

If you are travelling around Tuscany take a tour to Pescia and visit this garden. There is entry fee, couldn't recall how much was it, but it worths its price, the garden is a feast to the eyes. There are some parking places around, but...More

If you have young kids then this makes the perfect day out from Lucca. One ticket will get you into the Pinocchio park, the gardens and the butterfly house. We went as a couple and so skipped Pinocchio! However as a fan of architecture, both...More
