Villa Medicea di Cerreto Guidi, Cerreto Guidi

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.

  • I participated in the guided tour of the villa organized by the friends of the Villa Medici, which made us appreciate this wonderful facility, masterfully restored is open as a museum. Placed in the Centre of Cerreto Guidi with marvellous views over the marsh of Fucecchio and the neighbouring villages. It's really worth a visit!

  • Like all other Medici villas which we also visited this is beautiful and worth the visit (also free!). Inside the rooms of the villa is a small hunting Museum.

  • The villa stands on a hill in a dominant position in the Centre of Cerreto Guidi. Access to a grand staircase or ramp. Interesting collections on display and the garden. Superb views of the Tuscan countryside.

  • Beautiful villa in excellent condition, with exhibition of furniture, tools, beautiful paintings and that will immerse you in an instant in 1500. Free entry, closed only the second and third Monday of the month. Beautiful collections of weapons and the beautiful garden. Definitely a unique site to recommend to families and schools. Minus maybe, it is not easy to reach for those with walking difficulties, since you have to walk uphill or make a staircase to arrive. But from there you can enjoy a unique view. It's a lovely place. To see for sure

  • Splendid villa with monumental staircase and very interesting collection of paintings. Beautiful garden and views of the val d'Elsa and San Miniato. Free access. Keepers caring and attentive. The Ballroom, with a beautiful 18th-century sofa with a central plan, the sala delle ville, which is painted with other Medici villas (one per wall) and room with a canopy bed. Ongoing exhibition of cribs with a splendid travel diary of domijato migrants from a sinking ship.

  • Medici Villa used for hunting time. Free entrance and very friendly staff. It requires only a signature of remembrance

  • Fantastic visit. The villa maybe outside is one of the most opulent but surely the interior furnishings and contents are very precious. Also of interest is the history of the villa, with the story of Isabella de Medici. The garden is well maintained and the view from the main entrance is very much. Overall a vistor who I would recommend to anyone staying around. Last pleasant especially the entrance is free.
