The house, which is today a museum, is visited by pilgrims from all over the world. The tourist or Puccini enthusiast can visit the well-preserved rooms which testify to the dignified life-style of a genius who preferred a quiet life to one of luxury

They contain a great variety of mementos and relics, from the most significative portraits, to photographs dedicated to Puccini by colleagues, singers and  artists who collaborated with him, original autographed scores, curios and documents of inestimable value in their contribution to our knowledge of the life and work of the artist.

A delightful garden welcomes the visitor: in the limited  dimensions of the green space surrounding the villa, various different botanical types exist side by side:  suggestions of pergolas, an orchard, labyrinths, bamboo thickets with a wonderful choice of varieties, all perfectly tuned to the slightly decadent  intimate and gentile taste of the late nineteenth century.

The interior decorations and furnishing are extremely interesting, and include valuable pieces by Bugatti and Tiffany for instance, or examples of exoticism such as the Japanese screen, all of which constitute an exemplary testimony to the tastes of an epoch and recreate with touching immediacy the daily life of the Maestro.
