We travelled to Torre del Lago by train, then walked for 20 minutes or so through the pretty suburbs to get to the lake, which in itself is inexpressibly dreamy and beautiful. It is easy to see why Puccini liked it. The house lets in...More

This museum inside Puccini’s home by the lake is in need of funding in order to make the entire structure open to the public and spruce up/restore some of the furnishings (aa original lampshade was in tatters from age—or a cat) but I still found...More

Well - if you love Puccini then you really do have to visit the home of the maestro. This is a wonderfully atmospheric 'family home' with little altered since the maestro's death. The museum provides you with an audio guide included in the ticket price...More

The museum is poorly presented, and the guide seemed bored. The tour consisted of about five rooms, including the chapel and the room where Puccini did most of his composing. There is a lot of personal and musical memorabilia on display. I understand that it...More

The audio guide is excellent, and the house is pretty well as it was when the great man lived there. (They're working on opening the upper floor in due course.) You can see his death mask, his hunting guns, his pianos and lots of period...More

We visited in October but had checked the opening times and when we found the gates locked we didn't know what to think. Eventually my husband noticed a buzzer, 6ft high to the left of the gate, we buzzed, someone came and the tour began....More

We enjoyed an excellent little trip to Puccini's Villa although the lake is very disappointing. The festival was on but with an 11 year old we felt a 21:15 start was too late. I was disappointed but my wife knows best! The villa has an...More

It is one of the places that Puccini loved more, and one of those where the "maestro" spent more time. If you like his operas this is the place to enjoy the places where he got inspiration. And the lake of Massaciuccoli is really an...More

This was a highlight of our time in Tuscany, a little gem of a museum in the house where Puccini composed most of his major works, including La boheme, Tosca and Madama Butterfly. All of the artifacts are original, the piano on which he worked...More

I don't believe it is, and would doubt it, as it is a working museum. However, it is a very small venue, so assuming your wedding was quite small, I don't see why you couldn't make special arrangements with the patron... More
