This is a total delight. The audio tour is very good and the rooms are so atmospheric and you can just imagine Puccini sat at his piano composing his great operas. I am so so glad that I visited the house and do hope that...More

You don't have to be a Puccini fan to appreciate the care that went into this painstaking restoration. The excellent audio guide offers one a sense of the place's history and a feel for Puccini's life -- his dreams and disappointments. Be warned that admittance...More

So much Puccini memorabilia. It takes a while to absorb it. A great tribute to one of the world's greatest composers. It also shows how much his life interacted with other great musicians of his time. The Maestro, his wife, son and daughter-in-law, and now...More

We travelled to Torre del Lago by train, then walked for 20 minutes or so through the pretty suburbs to get to the lake, which in itself is inexpressibly dreamy and beautiful. It is easy to see why Puccini liked it. The house lets in...More

This museum inside Puccini’s home by the lake is in need of funding in order to make the entire structure open to the public and spruce up/restore some of the furnishings (aa original lampshade was in tatters from age—or a cat) but I still found...More

Well - if you love Puccini then you really do have to visit the home of the maestro. This is a wonderfully atmospheric 'family home' with little altered since the maestro's death. The museum provides you with an audio guide included in the ticket price...More

The museum is poorly presented, and the guide seemed bored. The tour consisted of about five rooms, including the chapel and the room where Puccini did most of his composing. There is a lot of personal and musical memorabilia on display. I understand that it...More

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

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
