Today we visited the Palazzo Pfanner. The Palazzo is great, but we even enjoyed the garden more. Peaceful, not crowded, away from the hot tourist spots. Highly recommended!

What a beautiful location very peaceful and quiet. Personally I enjoyed the gardens more than the house which was equally interesting. Gardens were immaculate with beautiful statues and a great collection on Terracotta potted Lemon trees.

The palazzo itself was interesting and had some items that were worth looking at, especially the surgeons instruments. Although some looked quite gruelling! The highlight for us was the garden. It is so lovely and tranquil, although fairly small. There is a beautiful lemon walk,...More
