Visiting the Villa

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 entrance is at 12:00). 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 to visit the gardens. 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 tours are available for alumni and Georgetown University community members. Villa staff members will work to accommodate requests for tours but 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.
