Planning a visit to Florence?

Visitors are welcome to tour the gardens at Villa Le Balze only by appointment. Appointments can usually be accommodated during the following days and times: Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. (last morning entrance 12:00) and 2 p.m. – 4 p.m. (last afternoon entrance 3:30). The Villa remains closed to the public on Saturdays and Sundays, school or public holidays and from the end of July to the end of August. Visitors should plan for approximately 30 minutes. We do not offer formal garden tours but visitors are welcome to guide yourselves around the grounds. Please note that as Villa Le Balze is a private residence, no access to any of the buildings is permitted to the general public.

Partial villa tours are available for alumni and Georgetown University community members. The villa staff will work to accommodate requests for villa tours but will reserve the right to deny access to all or part of the villa and its grounds for reasons of safety, privacy, and student life in general.

For more information or to schedule a visit please contact Assistant Director, Simona Mocali via email smocali@villalebalze.org or via phone at +39 055 59208.
