The house is located in a small courtyard all surrounded by vegetation. The atmosphere is fairy-like. There is not a giude but there are many panels that explain everything. Strongly recommended in you are a Petrarca's fan.

The house is probably the high point of your visit to this historic village. It dates from around 500 years ago and occupied by a well respected resident. We queued just before the 3.00pm opening time and when we came out the queue was extending right up the hill. The place is well kept and the frescos are impressive. There are artists and old photographs but much of the explanation is in Italian of course. It will not take you long to go round and it is quite shady.

Enjoyed our visit here. Located at the top of the village, it is well preserved and interesting both inside and out. Worth a visit!

The house is in the upper part of the village - so if you leave your car at the parking place in the vally, you have a long walk to reach it... But it is a nice walk along old stone houses, some churches, restaurants, shops... The house of the poet is nicely restored and worth a visit to learn about Petrarcas life.

You shouldn't miss visiting this place if you are anywhere nearthis town. Unfortunately informatios on English about Petrarca is really really bad translation from Italia -still you will learn and see more about life of Petrarca.

What a wonderfully preserved villa of the 14th century. Well worth visiting. A place of pilgrimage for Italians.

The casa is the original house used by Petrarca, and is wonderfully preserved. The exhibits are well done, with English translation, and the staff stands ready to respond to any questions. A definite must if in the area!
