Review of Villa Argentina

Villa Argentina
Ranked #2 of 61 things to do in Viareggio
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 October 2016

It may be small, it maybe free, but this is an elegant small mansion which is well worth a visit. A very high quality restoration project has brought this 1920s villa back to its former glory, when Variaggio was at its cultural peak. The rooms are very light and airy., and the external tiling detail is beautiful, as is tthe small but faithfully restored garden.
The ballroom is epic and must surely feature in period drama for TV and Movies ?
Well worth half an hour of your holiday.

A wonderful Villa in Liberty style, with nice frescos and paintings; ther is a Ballroom to visit; there are exhibitions; there was many Liberty style in Viareggio, this Villa is one of the nicest; if you find time don't miss to take a look.

There was not a lot to see at the villa. The patterned marble floors were the most noticeable feature.

We may have been fortunate to visit on a weekend when the villa was being used as a base for the convention of the Alpini regiment so had wide access both to the villa and the Alpini military history exhibition.
The villa is an outstanding example of the Liberty style occupying an imposing corner by the pineta. Fine details on floors, walls and ceilings, paintings and tile work. Ballroom is stunning.
Good to see it in use as a working exhibition centre too.
