  • One of the strangest places I have ever visited but also one of the coolest. There were clear indications of the original artist's mental state but as an artist at every turn I found something...

  • We went to an exhibition of the work of Niki de Saint Phalle in our home town and then found out that the Giardino dei Tarochi is also her work. We had been close to the giardino may times before...

  • It was compulsory to purchase tickets online and there wasn't any option available to purchase tickets paying on site neither with cash or card. Many people were refused entry upon arrival as they said they couldn't sell tickets on site. We helped two families purchasing the tickets for them online with our debit cards otherwise they would have gone away. The garden itself is nice, spacious and very quirky, certainly a different activity to do while in the area! Would come back next time if they fix the ticketing system.
  • I do not recommend taking the train here and expecting to get a taxi at the train station, as they instruct on the website. I bought my timed ticket online, took the train out, and no taxis were available in Capalbio when I got here. There wasn't enough time for me to take the bus to the garden and still make my train home, as the bus has a quite limited schedule. Tried calling the museum many times-- no answer. Total waste of a day, as well as admission cost and train tickets.
  • Cool eclectic garden made by artists. It is in a lesser touristic area of Italy, but worth a visit. Just get your tickets online and make plenty of pictures
  • 2hr train ride or drive from Rome. This an amazing incredible work of art by a renowned female artist. Really incredibly beautiful and colourful with an intense story of the artist life portrayed in her art.
  • First of all, even if you stand at the desk at the entrance, you are forced to purchase a ticket online...with your mobile device. Really dumb! Staff VERY unfriendly! Secondly, I find 13€ quite overpriced, especially in regard to the fact that all but one accessible figures are closed. It takes about 30min to see it all. It is beautiful, yes. But in the end we felt quite scammed
