  • Poggibonsi rather interesting historical sites, which are located in its suburbs. The city itself catastrophically damaged during the second world war from air strikes and watch there especially. The most attractive object is a park with a 15-century fortress built by the Florentine ruler Lorenzo di Piero de Medici il Magnifico. Surprised by the scale of the ideas and landscape solution Imperial Hill on which stands the largest fortification. Now there's a medieval theme park farm, a Museum, a church for the Western Gateway historic "Fountain of fairies" and Osteria in the fortress. It is possible to reach on foot from the Centre of town in a southerly direction. Not long, 15-20 minutes, but on a Hill area of fortification is not small. Fortress in its far corner. Best regards, Oleg
