  • We climbed on foot along the narrow road, rather dangerous because cars drive fast, to find that it's only open for 3 hours per week. So be careful to check the opening times. On the way back we saw that there are alternative pedestrian streets, they recommend.

  • Hearing the history of Villa Grock from its neighboring houses, one can really appreciate the efforts of Imperia to restore the villa. I was lucky to have been in Imperia and see Villa Grock, which has been designed by Grock himself. If you look closely at the details (e.g. windows, panels, even cement borders), you will see his artistic genius. It was unfortunate that when he died the house was left to ruins and I heard no family members took care of it. So I am thankful that the state of Imperia bought it and is slowly restoring it back and developed it into a museum. Grock is the one who popularized the red nose, and people should know more about him!
  • Lovely gardens and very interesting and innovative displays inside house. Only open to public on Monday afternoons.
  • The villa is nice but needs an urgent renovation
  • Grock the clown, versatile and talented character has loved the place where he built his dream villa. A privileged observatory on the gentle Hill of Imperia in the region of Farmhouses. Inside the villa nothing remained that can remember the lives of those we were all empty and unadorned. Only empty rooms although magnificent in the floors and ceilings. Magnificent lookout on the third floor with breathtaking views. Only the one worth the price of admission. Abandoned village gardens.

  • We met the character of clown Grock. The villa is beautiful. The view from the top is spectacular. Find out about opening hours before making the difficult climb to the villa
