Fascinating collection of surgical instruments, nice little garden

Very nice villa, trompe l'oeil paintings, set in its own garden, worth a detour. Historical link with the Pfanner brewery.

The gardens were gorgeous, well designed with a fountain in the middle and pathways with statues each side interspersed with lemon trees. Not much to see inside, however

Toured the elegant rooms that were open and restored. The displays focus on the family members medical practice with antique instruments...yikes! It was early in the season but the grounds. were beautiful. Lemon trees in terra cotto pots line the walks loaded with ripe lemons. Roman style statuary was a wonderful feature. around the fountain. Worth the stop and small... More

Pretty garden to visit and to relax, but the Palazzo itself is not that interesting. It was nice to visit in April because a lot of the flowers were in bloom/

Visited Pfanner and enjoyed the fountain and surrounding gardens. Enjoyed a tour of residence. Nice way to spend a leisure afternoon; quiet and peaceful.

If you are in Lucca, whatever else you do, the garden at Palazzo Pfanner is worth a visit. Even in the rain it was so romantic, so evocative of another era, so perfectly planned and executed and so Italian that I knew I was in an extraordinary space. There’s nothing overblown or over the top here, just symmetry, harmony and... More

This former private residence is in the corner of the walled city and easy to miss. Very interesting collection of period furniture but the real treat is the beautifully landscaped large garden. It worth finding a bench and relaxing for a few minutes. Great view of the garden from the walking, biking path atop the city wall.

of the rich guys in Lucca. The gardens are beautiful and you can catch a glimpse of how was to live at the end of the 19TH century in Tuscany. But nothing too spectacular here.

The garden and its statues is the true highlight here. It is a baroque garden with 18th century statues of Greek deities. It is well maintained and quite lovely. There are a few places to sit and enjoy this experience. The palazzo, which is included in the entry fee, is nice but definitely not the reason to visit. The gardens... More
