“Absolutely amazing, even moreso than the Parc Guell in Barcelona”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2013

This place is magic! And yet, it's hard to find on the map, hardly indicated from the Italian highways, not listed in most guide books, etc. What is wrong with people! Parents and adolescents alike we loved our visit of this park and stayed two hours, plus time in the gift shop to find a book to share with others! This place is hard to describe but it has a website, but know that it is way more amazing to see in person than on the website (which isn't necessarily true of, say, the ceiling of the Sistine chapel!)

“Must see for the whole family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

This sculpture garden is almost 1 very good reason to go to the South of Tuscany. It was lovely to walk around this garden and look at all the colorful details Niki de Saint Phalle has realized. Amazing inspirational place and interesting for children as well. (check the opening hours before going!).

“Spectacular, sparkling vision rising in the Tuscan Hills”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

Niki de St Phalle is an internationally reknown sculpture artist with installations in France, Israel, Japan, and California (San Diego, Escondido) among other places. As you drive to the Tarot Garden, glittering multi-colored, mirrored mosaic sculptures - two and three stories tall - representing figures from tarot cards - rise up out of the Tuscan hillside. The sculptures are accessible - following a path, you can touch the mosaics and, in one case, go inside a "house" to see mirrored rooms including a bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen. We visited Park of the Monsters in Bomarzo in the morning and drove to here in the afternoon. There's a small food stand in the parking lot. Although Capalbio is a little obscure, it's well, well worth the visit.

“One of the places you MUST have seen before you die!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

Energy of life precipitated in mosaic and dreamlike shapes ... not to be described in full by any means ...

Whether you just come and enjoy colors and shapes or try to fathom the deeper meaning ... just go there!!! I bet you will leave this place in high spirits and I cannot imagine anybody to escape the charme of this monument!
