About
The Garzoni Historical Garden is an 18th-century wonder that has remained virtually intact until now. It is the result of two centuries of work, begun in the sixteenth century, which transformed a vegetable plot and a hunting grove beside the country home of the Garzoni counts into a monument to artistic taste and the good life, with ingenious use of water and an exquisite selection of plants.

Faded decadence everywhere, but the price.
Aug 2019
Overpriced, yes. A little unkempt, yes. Needs investment, yes.
However, having wanted a day out from our Lucca base, and having driven up the mountains to explore the 10 Castellas including Collodi, we decided to take the 37 Euro hit (2 adults, one teen) on the chin.
The garden indeed looks grand from the lower entrance as you take in the full Vista on leaving the ticket office, and the lower planted section and fish/lily ponds are. But as you climb the staircases, you realise that the garden is very much part ruin and in a state of faded decadence. The giant sculptures are nevertheless impressive and although water spouts from the horn of the largest at the crown of the garden, the cascading falls beneath are long dried up and mossy. You can't help but imagine though how spectacular it would have been in its heyday. We scaled the outer paths and explored the impressive bamboo garden before scaling down the centre staircase and finding some shade in the underground caved seated areas. The garden is still interesting to explore in its faded glory but needs more money, and a bigger gardening team! The butterfly house is cool though and you can easily spend 20-30 mins in there, with giant species flying around you, small sparrow-like birds feeding up close, love birds and budgies, all in a mini indoor jungle. Having brought lunch, we passed our visit out and enjoyed a bite to eat on one of the terraces. For those struggling to find it, it's less than 100 yards past the Pinnochio place on the opposite side of the road - look for a wall with Garzoni painted on it in faded lettering (no surprise!)

Nice, but too expensive
The garden is nice even if since long no one has invested to restore it. For this the prices are too high. It is something to spend 20-30 min and no more. Unfortunately it is not possible to visit the Villa.

Charming garden and lovely butterflies
We visites the garden and the butterfly serre with the family. The garden is beautifull. Would be nicer if it were better maintained. The butterfly serre was an experience! Beautifull butterflies that you could watch very closely. Some even rested on the hand of my little niece. Loved it 😁

Nice Garden, but not as destination
It is very nice garden with decorated walls and nice sculptures and fountain and butterfly garden as well. you can you take lots of solo or couple pictures. You can also seat in my seating area to enjoy the view and garden. But I do not think is a destination for short travel to italy, many other places that I have visited in italy is much more beautiful than this one. I have visited this as package with Pinocchio park. One visit is ok but definitely not twice in any of these park. They are small and can be done in less than two hours. Although I got nice pictures.

Great park to stroll around. Plenty of shade and not too packed with tourists. Butterfly house is also very fun.
