  • Visited the Park in November was an exhilarating experience though not fond of photography we are driven to photograph every angle of the Park because the games of leaf color from yellow to Orange to push to capture the landscape only sore saw the amounts of existing buildings one wonders why not reuse as a convenience store or home to various exhibitions

  • Today we had the wonderful idea to visit the Villa Reale di Marlia near Lucca. At the ticket office a nice and pleasant in charge gives us the floor plan of the Villa recommending the best route. It starts by following right on viale delle Camelie (imagine in spring and bloom) along a small stream, until you get to the pond and opens a large park with the Villa. Coasting right the pond lies the Villa del Vescovo, the cave of Pan, Spanish garden and so on many other pleasant situations. The Park and the Villa were bought a year from foreigners (sigh ...) and that they're bringing back to its former glory. In any case worth a visit. The property will be closed from 3/11 until February 2018 for restructuring; the ticket price is 8 € discounted for members. Money well spent. P.s. the Villa for now is only visible from the outside, probably in 2018 it will be possible to visit inside. In any case, even so is gorgeous.

  • Great Park with a pond, very impressive, there is the possibility to have a picnic, taking with it all, and spend a special day in paradise.
