“Architectural gem.”
Review of Villa Argentina

Villa Argentina
Ranked #2 of 61 things to do in Viareggio
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 October 2017

A real gem, beautifully restored, used mainly for exhibitions. It can appear rather sparse when there is no exhibition present.

On a recent visit to Viareggio we saw an advert for an exhibition called Shifting Boundaries at the Villa Argentina so decided to go. It was well worth it. The exhibition was good but what a wonderful setting the villa made. It is only small but even without the exhibition it's well worth the visit. The staff were welcoming, the restoration work was very well done with a wonderful ballroom and fantastic floors in nearly all the rooms. As it is a small villa and does not take long to go round it is ideal for families.

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.
