“Medical history”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2012

We had hoped to see what a real palazzo was like--day in the life of a Luccan. Were disappointed to only be able to go in 5 rooms, and most were medical exhibits, which, albeit interesting, were not quite as we had hoped.

“Most modern palace in Lucca”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2012

Very beautiful architecture. More recent than the other palazzi in Lucca. Great garden. Exhibit on first floor only. Would have liked to visit the other floors too

“Stately town house”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

No wow factor for me although the garden inside the city walls with its statuary makes it stand out by comparison with others

“Beautiful house and even better garden”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2011

Only 1 floor was open when we were here, but it was a great house to see. I really liked the garden.

“Palazzo Pfanner a Waste of Money”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2011

Palazzo Pfanner includes some very nice gardens (although they are limited and have sections not open to the public) and effectively one level of a three story mansion-- which includes a few bedrooms and assorted medical devices and pictures on the walls-- all for 8 Euro per person! And, aside from a simple flier, if you want a guide (either in person or written material) then it will cost you more! Actually, the view of the Palazzo Pfanner garden from the Lucca walls is just as nice and costs nothing. Save your money and avoid this tourist trap!
