A great day out for the whole family. The gardens are extensive and very attractive with talking points throughout. The tour of the house was great (in english) with best quote from our 5 year old daughter saying she loved the "room with the glass fruit".

It is well worthwhile having a guided tour in English around the house before visiting the museums and garden. This gives an insight into the eccentricities of the owner, G. D'Annunzzo and enabled the visitor to fully appreciate the museums and gardens.

The gardens have wonderful views of the Lake and the front end of the WW1 warship stuck into the hillside is to say the least - unusual but this is the character of the place.
