Author Carlo Collodi spent his childhood at Villa Garzoni, which has become known as "Pinocchio's villa" or the "hundred windows."
There is space for 40 bedrooms.
Artist Angelo Michele Colonna painted many of the villa's frescoes in 1652.
The villa also includes a Palazzina d'Estate designed by Baroque architect Filippo Juvarra.
Thousands of visitors tour the building each year. Realtor Lionard Luxury Real Estate is marketing the villa to foreign buyers who are willing to invest in maintaining the extensive property.
The gardens were created around 1650 by the lucchese architect Diodati for the Roman marquis Garzoni and took 170 years to complete.
The villa overlooks one of the most spectacular and scenic Italian baroque gardens.
The garden has been compared to such impressive European gardens as Versailles, Fontainbleau and the Schonbrunn of Vienna.
The gardens feature a gochi d'aqua,or water garden, that is set in the steep hillside with terraced stairs connecting the different levels.
The villa belonged to the Garzoni family until the middle of the 20th century.
The property comes with several buildings and extensive baroque gardens as well as a butterfly garden.
