Parco Villa Reale

The Villa Reale near Lucca Tuscany

Last June we published an article on the Villa Torrigiani, one of many villas and parks in the Lucca/Pescia area.  The Palazzo of the Villa Reale is no longer open to the public unfortunately.  The stucco crumbling from some of it’s elegant walls testimony to the fact that it’s current owner now have neither the money or the will to renovate this once proud house.  However the park and gardens are open, and what a joy they are.  Extensive lawns and formal gardens descend the gentle slopes toward a lake in grand vistas, with superb mountainous specimen trees in magnificent clusters.
