“Palm Cottage Time Capsule”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

Palm Cottage is an architectural and historic treasure. Definitely worth a visit. Learning the history of the home and surrounding community lends perspective to our modern experience of Naples as an internationally renowned tourist destination. We owe so much to the early pioneers who settled this area. Taking the tour is a wonderful way to hear their stories.

“Wonderful walking tour of Olde Naples”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

After 8 years of coming to Naples, it was time to learn the history of this spot of paradise. No better way then taking the Naples Historical Society 2 1/2 hour walking tour of Olde Naples and Naplest oldest home, Palm Cottage. The docent, Nancy Webster, really made Olde Naples -with its cottages, architecture and stories supplimented with photographs a wonderful experience and just plain FUN!

“Step back in time”
Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

Lovely old Naples "cottage". Fun to see the old photos and furnishings. Knowledgeable docent increased my understanding of Old Naples and it's beginnings greatly. The garden was restful and Palm Cottage is only down the street from the Naples Pier.

“Very Historic Property With Beatiful Flower Garden”

Tours are avaliable for a small fee which is well worth it. Many antique pieces and wonderfully restored home. This is the oldest home in Naples and is near the Naples Pier. The garden in the back of the house are beatiful make sure to check it out after your tour.
