O.K. much of this glorious building is closed to visitors, but what there is available is a joy to tour. Those used to the fabulous opulence (and knowledgeable and enthusiastic volunteer guides) of many UK National Trust properties may be disappointed, but do pause to...More

Whilst not having many rooms open, the ones that are available are nicely staged. The garden offers a chance to take a rest and enjoy the setting.

Visited last week after seeing the garden from the city wall. The garden is small but it was lovely. The fountain and statues make it very romantic and lots of people, like us, were just sitting in the shade enjoying the peace. The house isn’t...More

Entry is round the back near the wall and you exit out of the front onto the streets. It was 6 euros for access to both house and gardens. You could easily walk around everything in an hour or a little over. It has the...More

We saw this garden from the walls around Lucca (they go all around the city and give you a great vantage point in which to check out the neighborhoods). It was so pretty I felt we had to make time to visit it. We went...More
