Villa Medicea di Cerreto Guidi, Cerreto Guidi
(4.3/5 based on 55 reviews on the web)
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.

  • This villa is very interesting to visit: definitely not comparable to the most famous, but remember that overall this villa was born as the hunting lodge of doctors that several times a year staying here just to enjoy one of their favorite hobbies. I also liked the gun collection exhibited in the various rooms. What I didn't like is that there are no guided tours and that there are no explanatory boards than what you see. Too bad! Also I think really is little known, not only from foreign tourists, but also by locals: should be publicized more, and even foreign tourists who visit Florence should be diverted and tempted to visit it!
