How Can I Schedule a Guided Tour of the Collection and the Gardens?

Guided visits of the Collection and the Garden are regularly scheduled throughout the semester: the slots are advertised on the NYU Florence Social Networks, at the OSL Office and at the Reception in Villa Ulivi. 

All tours are free of charge and include also historical rooms of the Villa that are normally closed to the public. Sign-up sheets are posted at the Villa Ulivi Reception desk (OR SIGN UP GENIUS). Available spaces will be filled on a first come, first served basis. On the day of the tour, meet at the main entrance of Villa La Pietra. 

We are also happy to assist you with any related research inquiries or academic requests.

When Can I Access the Gardens on my Own?

Student have open access to the Gardens from 9.00am to 6:00pm on weekdays, closed at weekends.

We very much hope that you will take advantage of the fact that the Villa La Pietra garden is open for you to visit. Within these hours you are free to spend as much time as you like in this world-famous garden but we do ask you to observe the simple rules. They have been developed to ensure everyone’s enjoyment of the garden is safeguarded.
