Wow! This place is amazing! All the rooms are full of antique furniture and historic items. The rooms are so exquisitely decorated you really understand how rich the owners were those hundreds of years ago. There's a free guided tour at half past the hour...More

The gardens are home to wide variety of unusual citrus species. You can only visit house as part of a tour - only in Italian. Plenty to see. Fun for all family.

First, there are very few tourists that attend this attraction. Second, plan ahead. Third, do take a phone in the event you can't walk from the road where the bus leaves you and you need to take a taxi ($19 Euro, nearly to the airport)....More

We were staying nearby so an easy walk to the Villa. Not sure what the moaning about the hill is about its not particularly steep and only about 1.5 km from the main road. We just missed the interior tour but enjoyed the gardens tranquility....More

The Villa Medicea La Petraia is a nice beautiful old villa a bit of a trip outside of central Venice. Nonetheless the trip is worth it as you enjoy lovely grounds in a great country home
