  • Very nice part of the ' 500, somber and less interesting the inhabited part afterwards by Napoleon's sister and the Savoys. They changed almost everything except the marvellous frescoes on the ceiling. When Florence became capital, Vittorio Emanuele II, however he did rearrange the Villa and build new stables. Built on the ruins of a medieval castle and passed the property to Lorenzo il Magnifico in 1479 which gave the assignment to the Sangallo to rebuild it completely, is within a beautiful park ... Two semicircular staircases lead up to the deck. On the first floor the room Leo X, Pope who did start a cycle of frescoes to ' celebrate ' the Medici family. The paintings were started by Andrea del Sarto, in 1512, and continue by Pontormo. I saw a painting by Vasari, a fireplace with columns/statues of Buontalenti and much more ... In 1919 it was donated to the Italian State which has opened to the public since 1984 (I think). Free I have left to go to the second floor with a gallery of still lifes put together by the Grand Dukes of Tuscany between the 17th and 18th centuries, but it takes longer. Negative reports. They did not enter our dog Honey

  • This monument mostly unknown to the mass of visitors cha jostle in the Tuscan capital is worth doing, as it is in use, the trip out of town. Magnificent Renaissance villa with its interior and its garden somehow visited
