We saw this garden from the wall and decided to investigate it later when we had completed the full circuit. Although it is not big we were not disappointed it is so peaceful and beautifully maintained creating many photo opportunities. The sound of running water in the fountain on a very hot day is extremely pleasant. There are many nooks... More

Very worthwhile stop in Lucca not a too distant walk from Puccini Museum. Gardens are noteworthy ans a tranquil, shady oasis.

Do visit both the garden and read about its history. Then the house also shows a lot about how the town of Lucca developed, what life could have been like.

Not a lot to see here but it doesn't cost much so is worth a visit. A little to see 8nside including the old kitchen area. We loved the nice garden, so pleasant to sit and enjoy the flowers and the sunshine.

As some other reviews have stated, you can see the gardens from the top of the wall. What you see is what there is. Just a small garden. It's 4 euros for the gardens, and an additional 2 euros to see part of the inside of the house. It looks impressive from the outside, but you only get to see... More

We came across the gardens by accident on our way home from lunch. You have to pay to get in but not much - around 4 euros I think. Some people were sitting reading books so I think you could pay and be there all day - we only stayed about half an hour though as we were heading back... More

Take a book and enjoy the quiet green and garden flowers Then visit the Pfanner mansion and enjoy the rooms especially the medical instruments! If lucky you will hear professional singers rehearse

When we think of the Walled Cities of the world, e.g. Carcasonne or the Forbidden City of China, we envision protection against invaders. In reality they also provided a haven for the intellectual and shared treasures of the life of the city. Lucca with its wall is not an exception. Walking the city wall provides an excellent perspective of the... More

While staying nearby we visited the Palazzo. The house has a very interesting collection and the garden - while small - is peaceful and beautiful.
