“Visiting a time gone by”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

Lucca has so much history and each time you step into some of it you slip back in time and imagine yourself in that period. It was wonderful to feel the atmosphere of the house, and the gardens were superb. We first noticed the garden when we walked on the wall of Lucca that surrounds the village. Well worth the time to find it and see this lovely place. So glad to see it preserved....

“Worth it to sit in the garden !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

quite difficult to locate as not signed at all well and hidden away although beautiful gardens can be tantilizingly seen from the city walls . Palace itself --not much to see but very interesting history of the owner and his son (doctor and great philanthropist ) and fab garden to sit in and recover from all the bustle of the city

“misleading adds-no furnishings found”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

a really lovely garden--but it stops there !!
very pleasant to sit among the lemon trees, but not for 5 euros !
actual house has one room with medical instruments,
rest of rooms are empty or closed. a major disappointment.

“Lovely gardens”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014

The gardens are beautiful, peaceful and quiet; you can relax seating there after walk in the city, enjoying smell of citrus trees and roses. The villa is nice, but interior is less impressive than the gardens. If you are not interested in the house you can get a good view of the gardens from the walls.
