Good gardens, 5 euros per person. Lovely to sit by the lily pond and listen to the frogs. Great view of the Villa and garden from there. A nice fresh walk through the wooded areas, well watered lawns. Worth a visit.

Lucca has some incredible villas, and Villa Grabau is definitely a top choice! It has lovely gardens and the lower floors are visit-able. You may even have a wedding at this venue, but I am not sure the cost.
