  • Despite the fact that the fortress was not hit, t to this exhibition complex, closed out the exhibitions, but the area around Nice. One of the few green spots in the city, where you can escape from suetyi tourists. There is a pond with frontanom and benches under trees where you can relax.

  • It wasn't the first time I visited Florence and yet I had never heard of. Massive, massive, massive, inspires AWE and fear. I always thought that was a Medicean Lordship lit, but the fortezza da basso forces you to change your mind! Worth some time although not among the first things to do in Florence

  • Gigantic irregular pentagonal fortress built by doctors as garrison in case of revolt of the population. Currently hosting concegni, concerts and exhibitions. At few steps from Santa Maria Novella station.

  • DO NOT WALK HERE AT NIGHT. The fort itself and surrounding park are beautiful. The main reason for posting this review is to warn young tourists about walking in the park at night. Carry pepper spray or a weapon if you insist.
  • It's okay to go there one time
  • You can't really look around the fort which is a shame and during the building work or in a bit of a shabby surroundings
  • The best place to do a show in the world. Right next to the train station and in the most beautiful city in the world.
  • It was closed during our visit. Fort is in really good condition. Would like to see what is on inside. But i snapped few photos of the wall.
