AROUND THE VILLA
The hill where the villa is located is perfectly preserved since the Renaissance times, so the views are very beautiful. The park is absolutely gorgeous, with plenty of olive trees and fruit trees, end we invite you to enjoy fresh season fruit from the trees.
On the back of the property you find a cypress tree wood, where it is very pleasant to have a walk. The cypress resin parfum gives the air a particular fresh good smell.
The wood is very clear to walk in or you just may follow along the small local street. A closeby farm sells fresh eggs and other local products.
In a few minutes drive you will reach supermarkets, sport and dress shops, restaurants, café, etc. The perfect calm and relax of the countryside villa is combined by the easy access to all the modern shops, easily reachable in a few minutes.
We suggest our clients to have a car for visiting Tuscany. In order to visit Florence you can ride by your car or just go at the train station of Calenzano where to pick up an easy train that will bring you in a few minutes in the Florence center. Pistoia, Pisa, Lucca, Pietrasanta, San Gimignano, Monteriggioni, Siena, Asciano, San Quirico d’Orcia, Bagno Vignoni, Arezzo are the main locations we suggest you to visit, if you have the time.
We definitely suggest you to visit the following museums:
Museo di San Marco – with incredible frescoes of Fra Beato Angelico, in a monastery with beautiful cloister and cells where the monks used to work and pray (“ora et labora” in latin language).
Another perl on Florence: the newly restored Museum Opera del Duomo. You can buy cumulative tickets that gives you access also to the Baptistery and the Dome. It is highly recommended visit, especially the Baptistery, the ancient piece of architecture in Florence dating from 700, about 1300 years ago.
Uffizi Gallery. To be booked well ahead.
My favorite masterpieces: Leonardo Annunciation, painted when he was just 21 years old.
MUSEO PALAZZO DAVANZATI
The house of a Florentine merchant of the Renaissance. It’s beautiful to be able to enter into a house and guess a little of the private life in those rich good times. Interesting also the collection of medieval ceramics and antique embroideries.
GARDENS IN FLORENCE
If you are coming fromSpringtime to October I suggest you to visit the Bardini Garden. In some seasons there are splendid flowers. In all seasons great views.
Another garden: Giardino delle Rose, next to Piazzale Michelangelo, has a secondary entrance not far from Porta di San Niccolò.
Giardino degli Iris, open in a short season, has a great collection of Iris flowers, the Florence local flower and symbol of the town.
