You must visit:

1. Duomo Group, Florence Italy - For some of the most amazing views of Florence, the cathederal provides two lookouts at Giottos' lithe and the belltower. The dome is a remarkable engineering feat where th crossing was constructed as a double shell in 1420.

2.Uffizi, Florence - Once the former offices of the ruling family Medici, this is a virtual location for seeing all that is Renaissance. Designed by Giorgio Vasari there are over 1,700 pieces. Allow sufficient time to enjoy these masterpieces.

3. Pitti Palace, Florence - The former residence of the Medici family, it is clearly were you want to be if you love art and beautiful gardens. The Boboli gardens are not to be missed full of fountains and cypress.

4.Siena's Campo and Palazzo Pubblico - An outstanding public square which would be an excellent location for a spy movie. Original construction began in 1100. There is a Palio horse racing twice a year. Origins of these races date from the Middle Ages.

Fantastic Views made us pick this Villa, And it looked exactly as it did in the pictures.

  • 5 of 5
One of the Owners, Adriana, was so helpful with many, many things. My husband and I had a great appreciation for the beautiful Wood Beam Ceiling as well as the wood furniture. There are beautiful touches everywhere of Antiques and Paintings. The painted walls were amazing. The View is Unbelievable! This was a trip of a Lifetime and the Villa was one of the best parts. We only wish we could have spent more time relaxing there. I have never rented like this before, and have been telling everyone that we were not disappointed because the Villa looked exactly as it does in the pictures. It is beautifully decorated and spacious. After traveling around to many areas we found Prato and Carmignano to be some of the prettiest. We ate at 2 restaurants in Prato, Mocha and Teatro, the food was wonderful and the people fantastic. If we had come when the weather was a little warmer we would have loved to take advantage of the pool and enjoy the views even more. We were very lucky to have stayed in this Authentic Italian Villa built in the 1600's. It was a much better experience then staying in a hotel. I also liked that because the web site is VRBO you are dealing directly with the owner. I would absolutely rent like this again. Thank you again Fabio and Adriana

Excellent, great views and Adriana is the best.

We had a great stay for 8 nights. The Villa is very well equipped with very spacious rooms. The view to either side is breathtaking, The owner Adriana is always available and willing to help. We were sorry to go. The only possible negative is that it is a little remote but to us it was great to come home and just relax after a long day out. The village nearby is quaint and it has a very nice restaurant ( Barco Real).
