Built in 1916 as a winter retreat, this lavish villa is a tribute to the Italian Renaissance. The museum contains much of the original furnishings and artwork, and is surrounded by lush, formal gardens.

Beautiful roman style villa of an american tycoon of the early 20th century, very well kept museum, astonishing baroque-like indoors with different kinds of marble. Don't miss the gazebo and the little shore where visitor ships used to disembark . The Cafe is a great place to have lunch with top-notch flavors (even the fries)

We spent the morning at this beautiful historic home. We had a tour led by Pat, who was absolutely delightful. The architecture & interior design is stunning, as are the gardens. The story of the owner is fascinating & whether you are a history buff, interested in interior or garden design, or just curious, the home & gardens are well... More

The entrance fee was $18 per person, or $12 if over 62, and with ID. We had our passports with us, so hubby was $12, BUT although I was only 2 months off 62, I had to pay full price, which I thought they could have wavered. The house itself is stunningly beautiful and quirky, but photographs were not allowed... More

If you like architecture you will enjoy your visit here. The gardens areally also lovely and offer many opportunities for picture taking. If you... More

We visited this year and we were so impressed by the beauty of this place. There's so much history and the views are absolutely stunning. Make sure to bring your cameras because you will take some great shots. This is especially true when you are outside by the water. The house itself is very nice. You have a chance to... More
