The visit is mainly the library and some family history. As the current family live upstairs its guided tour only. And to preserve the books no tours if its humid. Worth buying the dvd giovane favoloso to see the history. Wine for sale below.

A visit you will never forget. The Leopardi family runs the foundation and properties like if Giacomo and his family were still there. All you knew about the poet's life is probably determined by myths and partial truths..the guide will introduce you in a piece...More
