“worth a visit”

Il Vittoriale degli Italiani
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed February 11, 2013

This is a really beautiful located home filled with all sorts of interesting and fascinating clutter! Do your research on D'Annunzio first as it would probably help to understand how and why he chose to set up the decor in this manner. The house has an incredible view of the lake and the gardens are equally beautiful. Spaces are small and tiny objects are many so not recommended for people with mobility issues or with very young children, You are, in fact, made to lock away your bags and other personal belongings before entering the house. The guide through the home is informative and friendly but I don't know if it is offered in other languages. Based on other reviews, it seems that it is mainly in Italian.
The house alone is worth the visit but of course, visit the gardens,the mausoleum, the ship, and the torpedo boat all in the gardens. A fascinating slice of history!
Two restaurants right outside the entrance of the museum also offer a nice place to have something to eat. The trattoria on the right (right on the corner) as you are looking at the town centre had great pasta dishes and the pizzas looked good as well. .good value for money.

D'Annunzio was an extremely creative writer and its house reflects his personality. the rooms are full of all kinds of objects and the gardens are vast, beautiful and offer an incredible view on the lake. definitely worth a visit!

We were accommodated on the tour at short notice by a very friendly tour guide. the tour was in Italian but she translated the key bits. The garden tour would not be worth it on its own. See the house as well. Wathc out for opening times.

Interesting garden - bit quirky. Lovely day so didn't go into the house. Lovely village with several restaurants.

A lot of walking with many steps;not so good for older visitors.
Reasonable entrance fee.Gardens were being replanted when we were there.Interesting man who first bought the villa and set in motion the building;which the Italian Government seemed to have taken over after his death.Worth the visit.
