    Villa situated in the countryside around Florence, dominated by an imposing Tower and surrounded by a large park. On the ground floor you will find the beautiful frescoed courtyard with paintings depicting the glories of doctors. Many of the rooms still contain the furniture of the 19th century. Excellent and prepared the guide who explained in detail the whole villa. A bonus entry and guided tour for free ... Thanks state museums in Florence

    You visit each time one must find the entrance of villa's Gate, past the old entrance in abandoned garden you enter the garden next to the greenhouses you go up the ladder next to the empty tub. L entrance unfortunately is free and it is understood that the top is fi will embarrass this gem with staff shortages that warrants opening and maintenance as a Superintendence official who spoke fantastic English. help due to its availability ensures the opening of the villa and a visit of quality. Oçcorre spread knowledge fi qs villas make that x closing and become academies, schools or private resort world heritage Unesco, but "unentrerai" more like other Medici villas 6. Please visit the website of the polo museale toscano x correct information.

  • It's a beautifully place.
  • Guided tours in Italian only but free.
  • Incredibly beautiful villa in the city. Around broken marvellous garden with lots of flowers and citrus trees. Entrance free. The Villa can be reached only with guided tours in Italian, but completely free. Of particular interest are the numerous frescoes and dome of the Habsburgs.

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.
