After the visit to the Pinocchio park we went to the Villa Garzoni Garden which is just next door. We found the garden nice for a one hour visit, nice walk up the well ornamented garden and waterfall areas. The butterfly house is also quite nice. Unfortunately you cannot visit the Villa Garzoni which cannot even be accessed when in the garden. All the same: a nice visit.

This is a bit Disneyfied- at least the small town of Collodi is- but the garden is relatively intact. All somewhat Rococo and Baroque due to its C17 date but famous nontheless and well interpreted in the introductory exhibit. Best to avoid busy holidays and weekends. It is a shame that over 50% of the water features are inoperative. If the owners spent the money its trus brilliance would sparkle again. But they probably just love counting the Euros as they flood in in cash? The cafe is OK and rather attractive. Best in Spring and Fall. Summer can be blindimngly hot with no mist to cool it down as it was originally designed to do. A private bathing house is at the top of the garden- imagine what took place there in the day.

It’s not worth visiting in Winter time. I’ve been here in Spring and it’s very worth it because the garden is in full bloom. Now the butterfly house is closed and not even the beautiful artificial waterfall is running.
Definitely not worth the €10 entrance fee.
It’s a ‘dead’ garden.

The local tourist office suggested we'd pay 13€ but as a retired couple it was 8€. I'm so glad we went. This place is tantalising from the glimpses you get from outside but inside it's spectacular! We went on a sunny warm November Saturday. The garden faces due south and just soaks all the sun. As you walk up and up it's delights are increasingly revealed. The only disappointment was that the butterfly house is only open from March.

The garden and the palace were designed in the Baroque period - you can feel here the atmosphere of the distant past. Tucked away they attract quite few tourists (most of those who reach Collodi head for the Pinocchio park with their children) so you can enjoy here a moment of solitude looking at the plants and flowers, sculptures, or at butterflies which live in the Butterfly House in the park. The park is not very spacious but you will certainly find here some quiet spot, for example in the bamboo grove. The palace has been recently renovated but it is still closed to the public. You may, however, have a nice lunch in the restaurant located at the exit from the park.
