Villa Medicea di Cerreto Guidi, Cerreto Guidi

(60+ reviews on the web)
Castle History Museum
Once a home to the powerful Medici family, the World Heritage-listed Villa Medicea di Cerreto Guidi features an extensive collection of village artifacts and serves as the focal point of the surrounding town. Originally finished in the 16th century as a hunting lodge, the mansion boasts elaborate brick staircases, a stately exterior, and lush grounds. Stop by the villa and explore the on-site museum documenting the history of hunting in the region. However, it's the mystery surrounding the death of Isabella de Medici that really put this place in the public eye: legend has it that her vengeful ghost still haunts the mansion. Our Cerreto Guidi vacation planner makes visiting Villa Medicea di Cerreto Guidi and other Cerreto Guidi attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
