Labeled as one of the most beautiful villas in all of Italy.
But as of this year( 2019) there are newly restored room s in the villa and the gardens are open to the public. So bring a blanket and a few hours to relax and enjoy.
The extraordinary history of the Villa Reale estate has unfolded across the centuries with a series of transformations, witnessed by illustrious figures and royal dynasties.
The first nucleus was formed from a fortress, where the Duke of Tuscia lived during the early Medieval age. In 1806, Elisa Bonaparte Baciocchi, Napoleon’s sister and Princess of Lucca bought the property and the Villa took the name “Reale” (Royal) from Elisa’s title as Queen of Etruria. After the fall of Napoleon, the villa became the summer residence of the new court, and the stage for splendid dances, and often hosting noblemen and royalty.

Villa Reale was built atop a fortress that was the home of the Duke of Tuscia in the Early Middle Ages.
The property later passed into the hands of Lucca’s most important families, who transformed the fortress into a magnificent villa.
Elisa Bonaparte Baciocchi, Napoleon’s sister and Princess of Lucca, bought the building in 1806, after which the villa was known as “Reale” (Royal). Elisa ordered many changes to the villa and its gardens, including a partial redesign of the park bringing it in line with the 18th-century style of an English garden, decorated with statues and vases made from precious white marble from Carrara.
