Harvard students, Harvard alumni, and students and scholars of the Renaissance
Harvard students, Harvard alumni, and students and scholars of the Renaissance may request to visit the Villa, its collections, and the garden. Visits are only on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons at 3pm and in order not to interrupt the scholars at work, tours do not include the library. Tours are offered in English and spaces are limited (max. 8).
May-June and September-October are particularly busy so if you are planning to request a visit, please do so well in advance. Tours of the Villa and garden are not available during the months of July, August and at the beginning of September. Tours are also unavailable during the winter/holiday break; on days when I Tatti is closed and during weeks when events are taking place at the center.
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: Tours of the Villa and its collections have been suspended for the remainder of 2021.
We are offering a number of guided tours of the I Tatti gardens to the general public. Spaces are limited (max 12) and will be in English. The tour begins at 3pm, lasts approximately 1 hour, and will take place in all weather conditions. We regret that we do not permit children under the age of 12 to join the visit.
To participate in the tour you will be required to present a COVID-19 green pass and have your temperature measured upon arrival. Visitors are required to wear a facemask if a safe distance cannot be kept from other visitors on the tour.
