Visitor Information

Harvard students, Harvard alumni, and students and scholars of the Renaissance

Harvard students, Harvard alumni, and students and scholars of the Renaissance may visit the Villa, its collections, and the garden by appointment only on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons at 3pm.  In order not to interrupt the scholars at work, tours do not include the library.  Tours are offered in English and advance reservation is required as spaces are limited (max. 8). There are no visits during August, the first week of September, over the Christmas/New Year break, on days when I Tatti is closed, and during weeks when events are taking place at I Tatti.

General Public

Although Villa I Tatti functions as an active research center and not a museum, we do offer a number of tours for the general public throughout the academic year. Spaces are limited (max. 8) and tours are offered in English. We regret that we do not permit children under the age of 12 to join tours. 

Please note: No tours will be held during the month of July 2017. 

Our next tour dates for the general public are:

  • Tuesday, 7 February at 3pm FULLY BOOKED
  • Tuesday, 14 March at 3pm FULLY BOOKED
  • Wednesday, 19 April at 3pm
  • Wednesday, 10 May at 3pm
