  • Exceptional example of Renaissance architecture and Italian garden. Beautiful and dominating the below Florence. Dream rooms and frescoes. The only downside is that due to lack of staff cannot be visited independently. You may not see all its rooms and even most of the garden. A real shame though it remains beautiful and worth visiting.

  • The Villa is well worth a visit, as are all other Medici villas and parks. Definitely spring for visatere the grounds, which also won several awards as best Italian garden. Very prepared and helpful guide that will accompany you in the rooms of the villa.

  • Guided tours in Italian only but free.
  • When you say "treasures close to home". A villa bought by the Medici family in 1500 and now in Royal hands when Florence was the capital of the Kingdom of Italy. Luxury and ostentation in quantity, but always with class. Garden and villa open daily free villa explored inside only with supervisory staff (visits per hour for the half, up at 17.30). A wonder not to be missed!

  • Very nice place, edited extensively and inwardly. Free guided visit for about an hour from the keepers, with a tour inside seeing beautiful rooms decorated and frescoed. Very nice! Recommended

  • Medici Villa which has undergone several changes over the years. Admission is free and the leadership that we have had the pleasure of having was very courteous to explain all the historical details and various facts about the various sequences of historical epochs and fashions! Free entrance and guided tours every hour!
