The Vittoriale degli italiani is a hillside estate in the town of Gardone Riviera overlooking the Garda lake in province of Brescia, Lombardy. It is where the Italian writer Gabriele d'Annunzio lived after his defenestration in 1922 until his death in 1938. The estate consists of the residence of d'Annunzio called the Prioria, an amphitheatre, the protected cruiser set into a hillside, a boathouse containing the MAS vessel used by D'Annunzio in 1918 and a circular mausoleum. Its grounds are now part of the Grandi Giardini Italiani.References to the Vittoriale range from a “monumental citadel” to a “fascist lunapark”, the site inevitably inheriting the controversy surrounding its creator.

  • This place is so different from what one would expect. You will be surprised.
  • Truly a brilliant place. Do not by any circumstances give up on the house your as the house is completely built and designed around one man's crazy and fascinating mind. One of the coolest places I've ever been to
  • Massive grounds. Beautiful. Fascinating museum. Well worth a visit.
  • This place is incredible and reflects the image of the poet (Gabriele D'Annunzio), who still alive between the walls of his house. An awesome experience to learn more about the figure of D'Annunzio and to spend time in an amazing place!
  • Fabulous area to visit for a day, spectacular views and some history thrown in. Get the land train from the ferry terminal to avoid a 20 min uphill walk.
