The countryside surrounding Orgiano has much to offer: cycling itineraries and hill-walking, visits to ancient mills and vineyards producing excellent wines. The Villa and its grounds constitute an important rural complex, rich in the history of past centuries. For more than twenty years we have welcomed visitors from home and abroad, architects and school groups, united by their interest in parks and gardens. All visits to the interior of the villa are accompanied by specialist staff and last approximately one hour. Visitors are free to visit the park and garden without a guide. For school parties, special visits to the villa and to the Museum of Daily Life and Work may be booked in advance.
