Overview

The Garzoni villa and garden are extraordinary examples of 18th century Tuscan taste and culture. The Garzonis were a powerful family originally from Pescia.The garden, laid out like an amazing theatre, with triumphal fountain displays and great star-shaped basins, was the envy of kings and princes. It may be compared not just with great Italian gardens such as Villa d'Este, Boboli and Reggia di Caserta Park, but also with other E.pean marvels like Versailles, Fontainebleau, Saint-Claud, Potsdam, Wichelmhohe and even the grandiose Schonbrunn of Vienna.
