The villa was originally an 18th century casino and coffee house before it was given a neoclassical makeover in the 19th century. The park outside is a lovely place to stroll, a collection of terraced grass and flower beds on land that slopes towards the sea, with an open air theatre and an Ionic temple.
Inside though, the museum founded in 1931 is now one of the world’s largest collections of decorative arts. It has 6000 items from the 12th to the 19th century, which includes a vast collection of ceramics. The other exhibits include paintings, medieval art, furniture, glassworks, European and Oriental porcelain, and other decorative items.
