  • This is really a fantastic classic Renaissance garden with associated villa. Unfortunately, the garden is not so well managed, the impression is that there is a lack of knowledge, love, commitment, and money. "The cafe" was a machine that you put money in, and some dull plastic chairs and a table in a dark room. Unfriendly employed woman who does not speak a word of English was the only person we managed to find when we wanted some answers to questions. Free entrance to the area, the Group views of the Villa's Interior in Italian.

  • Beautiful villa and grounds, spring brings the blossoming of bulbous plants in an explosion of colors. The villa full of preserved parts ... shame that the Lady at the reception, with such rudeness, she marched in record time because he was running out of time visiting hours ... guide prepared but same attitude.

  • Beautiful villa sin that we were kicked out by the guardian because expired wait to visit ... too bad that they do enter into two groups because Group of 60 people including people of a certain age, then came a little later than the first group, gave orders to the guide of where to go and what to do visit and as icing on the cake we didn't visit the villa because expired time. the ticket we paid in full ... definitely not recommend visiting this villa only and exclusively for the rudeness of the guardian! a great rude

  • 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!
