    I only visited the garden of this villa Medici, but worth being the first Italian Renaissance garden. The garden is divided into three terraces with a central fountain with the sculpture of Ercole.Il garden includes 500 citrus trees in pots, a beautiful area containing herbs and other plants, in addition to the relaxation of a beautiful view over Florence ... As to free entry is well worth a visit!

  • Wow
  • Another of the great parks bequeathed by the Medici in Florence, with a garden full of so many species and with the opportunity to visit the Museum inside the Villa della Crusca.

  • Doctors had built several country houses. The villa di Castello, then quite out of Florence, now almost urbanised population, is one of them. A nice, with a beautiful park, which is well worth a visit.

Where to stay in Florence

Variety is not a problem when deciding where to stay in Florence. The compact town center is packed with hotels, hostels, and small inns. The drawback of this upmarket central area is that even family-run B&Bs often cost as much as luxury hotels. For more affordable lodgings, explore the area outside the tourist-driven city center. Staying in one of the city's residential neighborhoods allows you to immerse yourself in the daily life of local Florentines. B&Bs and hotels outside the center offer private parking and spacious rooms, all within walking distance of the main tourist sites.
