The audio guide is excellent, and the house is pretty well as it was when the great man lived there. (They're working on opening the upper floor in due course.) You can see his death mask, his hunting guns, his pianos and lots of period...More

We visited in October but had checked the opening times and when we found the gates locked we didn't know what to think. Eventually my husband noticed a buzzer, 6ft high to the left of the gate, we buzzed, someone came and the tour began....More

We enjoyed an excellent little trip to Puccini's Villa although the lake is very disappointing. The festival was on but with an 11 year old we felt a 21:15 start was too late. I was disappointed but my wife knows best! The villa has an...More

Being a big Puccini fan I just had to visit!! Interesting to see where the great man lived and also to see some memorabilia.

This was a highlight of our time in Tuscany, a little gem of a museum in the house where Puccini composed most of his major works, including La boheme, Tosca and Madama Butterfly. All of the artifacts are original, the piano on which he worked...More

The place is unique, filled in with an atmosphere, and priceless artefacts. Unfortunately, becomes less valuable, when you've got no clue what's behind it! When you go to a museum, you look for an additional information! More than just an arid printout!!!!!! They couldn't answer...More

Extremely well kept villa belonging to Puccini. Many original features and belongings are on show, as well as Puccini's grave, personal piano and hunting gear! It's a must-see for anyone in the area who's interested in music. You won't be disappointed! It's a small shame...More

A lot of thought and effort has gone into the villa. Even if you are not interested in opera it is worth a visit.

None shall sleep - unless more visitors come to see the ground floor of the maestro's home-because the Trust needs more funds to renovate the bedrooms!! This is a charming house filled with a cornucopia of Puccini's personal effects.Overlooking the gorgeous lake,Torre del Lago clearly...More

I don't believe it is, and would doubt it, as it is a working museum. However, it is a very small venue, so assuming your wedding was quite small, I don't see why you couldn't make special arrangements with the patron... More
