I cannot rate this lower than 1. But it deserves 0. Even small kids cost 12 euro; the same as an adult. Outrageous since as a tourist, you cannot just leave the kids to bake in the car in the Italian summer heat. You have to bring them along and pay for them effectively multiplying your ticket cost by the amount of kids you’ve brought along. Most of the presentation is in Italian and there’s no chance for kids to understand much. This is by all means a tourist trap money machine and I wholeheartedly recommend everyone to skip it and spend their time and money somewhere else.

If you're italian, you cannot remain indifferent to the Vittoriale. You breathe history throughout it, and a critical part of italian history too. If you are not italian, you also cannot be untouched by the legendary life of D'Annunzio, and you will enjoy a spectacular view of the Garda Lake from a unique setting. What is really impressive is the vaste amounts of original furniture, tapestry, books, personal objects, photos, extravagant sculptures and artefacts belonging to the Poet-Soldier all with interest meanings behind all that. All of it exceptionally well kept and maintained. As a history fan, i also enjoyed the D'Annunzio Eroe museum, with lots of objects such as uniforms, Arditi daggers, medals, original correspondences... Absolute not to miss: the plane flown by D'Annunzio over Vienna in WWI which is hanging over the auditorium, the MAS 96 driven by D'Annunzio, Costanzo Ciano etc in the 'Beffa di Buccari' and the war ship Nave Puglia is a must see, both also from WWI. Well worth a visit.

As a literature geek and mansions enthusiast, how couldn’t I visit Gabriele d’Annunzio’s last home as well as his most famous one? I visited it with my parents some weeks after my diploma, it was a fantastic gift after the pain and stress due to final exams. I loved the gardens, the rooms and the view of the Garda Lake.
I recommend this even if you aren’t a literature geek (my dad is not into literature but loved it too eheheh)

The home of D’Annuzio, this man was a kleptomaniac amongst other things. The tour of the house is essential to understand he man and the history. The gardens seem to go on and one and at every turn there is something unexpected - including an Italian warship !

The park was amazing but I was suprised to see that there were no places that would sell water or other drinks during the hot summer days. We had a water bottle with us, but ran out of water before we could finish our tour. The website sited that there would be a cafe in the grounds but it was closed. A suggestion: add a cooler with some drinks to your bookshop - Im sure you could make decent sales with it.

The Vittoriale is well worth a visit if you like falling down the rabbit hole of one man’s eccentricities and delusions of grandeur, it’s also an interesting testament to Italian history and ways they are (not) dealing with it.

The reason why I am giving two stars is the guided tour we took through the house which failed to mention anything about D’Annunzio’s relations to fascism and even stated that he acquired money for furnishing the house and all the expensive artefacts solely through his poetry while the man was often bankrupt and the fascist government made funds available to expand the estate.

A little truth wouldn’t hurt here, and it makes for a more interesting story.

A breathtakingly beautiful villa set in a carefully manicured park with exciting historical objects spanning centuries. Features include half a frigate, a submarine, an amphitheatre built in the Roman style for open air performances, a cascade running down a ravine ending in a series of hammer ponds that can be reached via purposely built steps. This is an outdoor adventure in a natural setting with magnificent views of Garda Lake..

I come back to Vittoriale after 30 years. The Vittoriale foundation made a great job: the area is clean, the anphitheatre was revamped, the museum area is good, the park is on the top. No question .. if you like the history, the literature and the art you must pay a visit to Vittoriale

Spent several hours here, visiting the Priory, and the fantastic grounds, gardens, and sights. Views are spectacular from the Mausoleum. Definitely a place to go with a certain degree of fitness - steep inclines, loads of steps, and well worth it. Staff very friendly and helpful, hand held translation control for tour of the house for different languages. Excellent experience

this was'nt really my choice of place to go, not something i would normally do, but it was very, very interesting, it has something for everyone here, including guided tours. I was very plesantly surprised, my friend went through the tour part and said it was 'amazing', i went throught the gardens and walked round to where i thought it was out of this world....to the point where there is a battleship in the garden...yes! and you can go on the ship as well, yes it is a full sized one. It is definatly worth a trip here, there are so many things to see it is almost kicking yourself not to go here!, for the entry charge compared to what you get to see it is deffinatly very good value. Here you have it all, history, art, architecture, an amazing veiw, the chance to gain so much knowledge, AND some fantastic places to eat near by.
