  • Villa Grock stands on a hill, so it can be seen even when you're on the other side of the River (divides the Empire into 2 parts). Clown Grock has been involved in the design of this villa and I tell you, that is not a bad thing happened. There is even a 360-degree observation deck over the entire city. In front of a wonderful garden with a fountain. Not a lot of spoiled the impression that not all the interactive exhibits. But overall we really enjoyed. Pay attention to the timetable. Villa Grock is open for visits only on Monday from 15:00 to 18:00.

  • 8 years ago, we were already there. At that time the Park was open and maintained. The Villa itself was shot due to renovation. When we were there a week ago, Park and Villa were closed and looked very shabby and unkempt. Apparently is no longer invested in this wonderful plant. Very sad.

  • We walked up a lot of steep paths and stairs to get there but well worth it! Lovely quirky building well restored, with grounds needing more work. Had to wait to get in so got discount on tickets, int...  more »

  • 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!
  • The villa is nice but needs an urgent renovation
  • Villa Grock is a visit worth run is situated on the Hill of Imperia. It was owned by a Clown who through his creativity and lawlessness has created a gem with an aspect that affects very very special architecture in every corner. Wonderful Not To Be Missed

  • A place of Enchantment, mysterious and extraordinary. A fine maintenance, friendly and helpful staff, an exhibition with intelligence. We loved everything and come back again!
