First, there are very few tourists that attend this attraction. Second, plan ahead. Third, do take a phone in the event you can't walk from the road where the bus leaves you and you need to take a taxi ($19 Euro, nearly to the airport)....More

I had been here 13 years ago so was keen to go back. It's no longer possible to get a bus from Florence so you have to take the Tramvia from the SMN station to the Piazza Dalmazia stop then get bus 2 or 28...More

It's a quiet and pretty place with only a few tourists and really special guided tours. The rooms give a quiet good impression about the daily life of the great Medici Clan and the italian king. A must-see if you are more than a weekend...More

This is one of the most enchanting Medicean villa to visit. Free entrance, you've only to be sharp (every 30' min. from 10 am to 4 pm, approximately) and leave a tip for people who bring you inside, without explanation: but don't worry. Special, in...More

The gardens are home to wide variety of unusual citrus species. You can only visit house as part of a tour - only in Italian. Plenty to see. Fun for all family.

From 8.30 per hour a free guided tour starts with a volunteer who accompanies you in the various rooms and, if you are lucky, he/she will explain you something about the place, so you can enjoy the visit a lot. The garden is very nice...More
