  • This spectacular sculpture garden is a delight. The brilliant mosaics and unusual figures (mostly from the tarot) provide a wonderful opportunity to indulge your imagination. Be sure to go inside The ...  more »
  • We were together with 4 friends 5 greyhounds and 3 rVs. To start a large parking lot that allows campers to stay comfortable, to enter with dogs no problem as long as equipped with muzzles, once in the garden opens a fantastic world, particular works of art some of which can be visited inside, strongly recommend!!! Beautiful!!!

  • The Tarot Garden is an open-air museum. It is a magnificent work of esoteric art. It is a space dedicated to the visionary art of a complex artist with clear influences from modernism, especially Catalan. Would you ever let a pack of kids scream and run around the Giocanda at the Louvre? I hope the answer is no, so in this way all Italian to respect the art, I am sorry to say that this museum should not be so poorly attended and poorly respected. I see allowed animals behaving more elegantly than human adults. The tarot garden, however, remains a must visit.

  • A very surprising place! I did not expect any similar! I thought it was just another garden between thousands but it is not like this! It is instead a Wonderful place and well organized, with just a bar at the parking and a small souvenirs shop at the exit. If you are lucky, you could have a guide included on the price of the ticket, if you go to visit the "garden" on Friday afternoon. It would be so much funniest if you take a round through the "tarocchi sculpture" by your own before to have the explication of the guide! If you are in holiday or travelling around the south of tuscany, well, you must not loose it!
  • Can't miss this. I teach about the Tarot for a living and I took my students here. I am rarely overwhelmed and this place was packed with power and inspiration. You gotta read the story behind it too.
  • Beautiful place, definitely worth it! The staff are very friendly and welcoming. Could have spent hours there taking creative pictures and admiring how the female body and curves are put in value throughout the statues.
  • This place was on my bucket list and I'm not disappointed! Truly a magical place. A beautiful sculpture garden by the great artist Niki de Saint phalle. There was a entrance fee around 10€, they have student and people-over-65 discount. Many great sculptures in the garden which some of them you can enter, like the one Niki lived in when she build the park. There was a bit crowded with a lot of kids running around but if you're lucky you'll get some time of your own in the sculptures. By the exit they had a small shop you could by the niki-tarot, t-shirts, books, plates and so. No restaurants nearby but a small ice-cream shop on the parking lot.
  • cool experience, worth about 1 hr, maybe at most 1.5 hrs if you want to take extra time. a mix between disneyland and a modern art snow. perhaps small, and few areas closed off. but .... very expensive at 12 euro per person (kids pay 7) more than most treasured museums that italy has to offer.
