  • Stunning Villa reminiscent of Versailles that unfortunately is in bad shape. It's a pity that Italy is not as proficient as France in handling these pieces of art.
  • It's really an amazing place to visit, especially during summer...and in autumn the atmosphere is like a picturesque because of its huge garden.
  • 18th-century villa, called by some "the Versailles lombarda", and in fact potentially would be awesome, if not a bit "messy" for lack of funds. Only in recent years the Foundation Rancilio began the restoration, and it shows in the State that unfortunately pour some areas, but I must say that the effort to make the former glory there is and it shows-you just have to wait and see! Visited yesterday at the inauguration, the tour interesting and fun, and with the Nice sunny day the Park had its charm. Visit it, even to help his return to ancient glories!

  • Visited on May 1, the exterior is neglected, the façade is very ruined and a scaffold (mounted in a really long time ....) ruin the aesthetics. The Interior is beautiful, frescoed rooms but remains. The garden has many plants and fountains but all you see are neglected, ruined, unhelpful and go into the theater of Diana is full of weeds and Brambles to the sides of the driveway. It is worth a visit if you are in the area but would have to restructure radically. Maybe it deserves during evening concerts ...

  • The pluses far outweigh those against it, I'll try to be objective. Although many areas of the Park are a bit abandoned to themselves, because in funds (which apparently come mostly from donations beyond that-maybe-regional grants) are scarce, I think the Villa and the Park are beautiful. I agree with the price of the ticket (5 euros for the visit of the Park and of the ground floor with view adjoining, and 8 euros for the guided tour + Park view) since this is entirely up to raise money for restoration that is already in progress. Fascinating guided tour, the guide very good and Nice, comprehensive and engaging explanations, which not all guides can provide, for both adults and children. There is a children's area with staff who was able to involve and entertain us adults without children! There is much work to be done but given the size and the amount of work, I think they're already engaging enough, these issues are thorny and difficult to manage, plus you have to engage the right professionals for not doing more harm than good. It would take more organization instead for staff (who coordinates the work being done in the Park, could use more security, you should cordon off areas "off limits" because full of work equipment or excavation, anyone who follows events in villa, but especially the bar: more than half an hour in a row for three coffees, although people in the queue wasn't much). In short, the villa and its history are great, the staff should be better organized, especially in providing information to the public that did not always clear what it can do inside and how: shame to miss opportunities) in the end it was a beautiful day at the villa, between works of art, a fascinating history, costumes and historical reenactments, the park with the beautiful sculptures and lots so many people. I recommend it to everyone!
