So beautiful, so tranquil. Take a moment and visit the gardens. Sit a while, ponder yesteryear and take a deep breath. I understand they have an apartment for rent at the Palazzo. Could you imagine waking up to that beautiful garden and fountain.
The magnificent palace was built for a wealthy Moriconi family in the 17th century and the garden was designed in the 18th century. The design of garden is attributed to Filippo Juvarra as an example of the late Baroque style, with forest plants, monumental statues...More
O.K. much of this glorious building is closed to visitors, but what there is available is a joy to tour. Those used to the fabulous opulence (and knowledgeable and enthusiastic volunteer guides) of many UK National Trust properties may be disappointed, but do pause to...More
Wow - what a beautiful garden! That's a place to be contemplative in. It's very well kept. The villa itself has only a few rooms to visit. So on a sunny, warm day, you'll probably spend more time in the garden than in the house....More
You are allowed to pay 6 euro p.p. tot visiting the garden (of which you have a complete overview from the lucca wall) and only 3 rooms from the vast house (less than 10 percent). Brewery, main kitchen, living area.. all not accessible to paying...More
To see these historic apartments and gardens, a joy. Imagining how they lived back then, the actual canopy bed, the tools of the doctor’s trade, tapestries, paintings, lovely. And the fountain, the garden with its sculptures, all isolated within this walled inner city. To see,...More
Initially we paid for just the garden which is beautiful but not enormous. There are quite a few statues and a lovely pond with a fountain. It’s nice to sit and enjoy the atmosphere, and the peace and quiet. After a while we decided to...More
Visited last week after seeing the garden from the city wall. The garden is small but it was lovely. The fountain and statues make it very romantic and lots of people, like us, were just sitting in the shade enjoying the peace. The house isn’t...More

What's your perfect day? (18 Replies)
As some of you know, my Sister and I will be visiting Lucca in less than a month's time. Our Italy schedule, up to when we arrive into Lucca, is pretty chock a block full. I'm really looking forward to gearing down for a few days in Lucca before heading back to full-on Rome, and then home. Our visit to Lucca will be the only time where we're not bound by schedules or plans (other than a cooking class I've chosen to do to celebrate my birthday). We've researched enough to know we're keen to...More

hi: if you only have 2 days in Lucca, you are probably already doing 2-days worth...a cooking class is 1/2 day; walking the walls and having a picnic is a few hrs ... markets and gardens and Pfanner and walking all around is another day...before you know it, your time is full again with "plans".... we were in Lucca for 2.5 days/3 nights and could have stayed longer. A perfect day? some delicious coffee and a sweet thing...a leisurely stroll around the ramparts, walking Lucca's winding...More
Palazzo Pfanner (5 Replies)
I'm very much interested in visiting both the gardens and building. Does anyone know if we should pre-book our combo tickets to do so? And does anyone know if we're allowed to take inside photos? I hear it's quite beautiful.

There is no need to pre-book. There's never much of a crowd. Unless they've changed their policy lately, you can take photos. TAB
