I made an appointment for a guided tour of the villa and gardens. (The website shows opening hours, but there's no ticket booth or obvious entrance, so call ahead to ensure hours and/or a guide). 12 euros/pp. Allow up to two hours. You can also...More

Some beautiful places are underestimated because they are too near bigger cities as are Firenze or Lucca. Beautiful palace with fine garden is really interesting for a long visit with small group, with your partner or family. Big group will spoil such a place. It...More

The gardens are undergoing some restoration and addition of new features but are certainly worth exploring. Clearly some of the old features ( and some newer like the 1920,s swimming pool) are showing signs of damage and access is restricted but this does not seriously...More

I have visited the gardens of this villa with small groups of people many times over the past 9 years and they are delightful. There is also a huge ornate pond, originally stocked with fish to feed the families living in the Villa since 1590's....More

Suffice to say this is another splendiferous Italian garden with some water features and a fine Villa- well worth a visit. The earlier part with grottos and statuary- Drotto dei Venti (winds) is in somewhat poor repair but its naughtiness is charmingly evident and it...More

Spent 2 hours doing the grounds and villa. The architecture interesting. So the tour as it adds context to everything. Gardens were not well kept and the experience a bit disappointing. 12 euros for entry and tour. Pick a non scorcher time of day. The...More

Well worth a visit! We had a guided tour of the lower part of the house - the guide was interesting and amusing in both Italian and English! The rooms in the villa still have the original frescoes and furnishings - a very interesting tour....More

What a great way to spend a few hours in the Lucca countryside. We thoroughly enjoyed the splendour of this amazing villa and its gardens. Our tour of the villa was conducted by Stefano, Italo-British who spoke so passionately (in immaculate Queen's english) revealing an...More
