Fodor's Review

The estate of the larger-than-life Gabriele d'Annunzio (1863–1938), one of Italy's major modern poets, and later war hero and supporter of Mussolini, is filled with the trappings of conquests in art, love, and war. His eccentric house crammed with quirky memorabilia can only be seen during a 30-minute guided tour, also given in English, and the extensive gardens are definitely worth a stroll, particularly to see the curious full-sized warship's prow. There's also an imposing mausoleum, made of white marble, along with two museums showcasing personal items from d'Annunzio's exploits.
