This is a bit Disneyfied- at least the small town of Collodi is- but the garden is relatively intact. All somewhat Rococo and Baroque due to its C17 date but famous nontheless and well interpreted in the introductory exhibit. Best to avoid busy holidays and...More

It’s not worth visiting in Winter time. I’ve been here in Spring and it’s very worth it because the garden is in full bloom. Now the butterfly house is closed and not even the beautiful artificial waterfall is running. Definitely not worth the €10 entrance...More

The local tourist office suggested we'd pay 13€ but as a retired couple it was 8€. I'm so glad we went. This place is tantalising from the glimpses you get from outside but inside it's spectacular! We went on a sunny warm November Saturday. The...More

The garden and the palace were designed in the Baroque period - you can feel here the atmosphere of the distant past. Tucked away they attract quite few tourists (most of those who reach Collodi head for the Pinocchio park with their children) so you...More

We weren't interested in going to the Pinocchio theme park but did go along to see this large garden complete with a butterfly house. It was a pleasant afternoon - the gardens are larger than first appears, not only with a walk up to an...More

Elaborate Italian Baroque garden with cascades and fountains, bamboo forest and a hedge maze, sculptures scattered in the park, a tiny zoo (goats, doves and exotic birds) and a butterfly house. Innovative design of the garden is prominently featured in Garden History books. I came...More

It is not an easy place to get to. Once off the motorway, it is still a fair distance away, off the beaten track. It is in a sleepy village with not much happening. The garden was supposed to be well known but the photos...More

These are very unusual gardens, terraced up a hillside and well worth a visit. They are however a little tired and although we were there on a Saturday morning in June the waters were not running ( a major part of the appeal) and there...More

These gardens were stunning!! Well worth the 13 euro to get in. It was lovely walking around the garden, around the water fountains. The butterfly enclosure was ok, but I didn't see too many coloured butterflies - perhaps you'll all be more successful. There were...More
