Tuscany has been in the past an important cultural center and today is a tourist destination renowned and visited daily by many tourists who explore in its entirety; from Pisa to Lucca from Florence to Siena to San Gimignano , but it is still possible to find some places in Tuscany unspoilt and waiting to be discovered . Pistoia is a city of unique beauty that lies in the north of Tuscany, from the depths of the Italian character , a lively village , sometimes congested traffic at other times quiet and peaceful , so perfect place for their holidays .

What makes Pistoia hidden jewel of Tuscany ? The Basilica of Our Lady of Humility has the third largest dome in Italy , after Rome and Florence. The historic center with its concentration of buildings and medieval monuments has a beautiful Piazza del Duomo, the square surrounded by ancient streets , most of which are open to traffic. On Wednesday and Saturday mornings there is a market crowded by both locals and tourists . Pistoia also boasts some stylish clothes shops and shoe stores where you can find the latest fashion items at prices far cheaper compared to other Italian cities .

Almost every evening from 19:00 onwards the locals went into their favorite bar for a coffee or an aperitif , during which snacks and refreshments are served for free and people can relax with friends talking about the latest sports news and gossip .

The best bars in the city are centrally located and are the 'Coffee Cavour ' and ' Santopalato ' (the saint) . The restaurant Santa Maria del Giglio is located in a renovated chapel and is truly spectacular , and the traditional Tuscan dishes are served daily in the oldest hotel in Pistoia ' The Reversal ' . In addition, in the countryside, and it is worth reaching , there is ' Il Frantoio ' Via Valdibrana , where they serve the best food in the whole area .

The 'walk ' is still an important place for the country and on Saturday evening from 17.00 onwards gather young people from Pistoia , joined an hour later by the other older residents . The same 'walk' is repeated every Sunday in the late afternoon .

If you want to discover the culture of Pistoia is to see the silver altar of San Jacopo housed in the main cathedral of San Zeno ( what was once a great saint ), which is located in Piazza del Duomo flanked by the Bell Tower, the Baptistery octagonal San Giovanni in court and the main museum of Pistoia ( Museo Civico ) . Also to see the facade of the church of San Giovanni Fuorcivitas in Via Cavour and the Basilica of Our Lady of Humility with its magnificent dome, designed by Vasari , is located in Via Della Madonna . Magnificent work of art is The Hospital of the stump with its friezes of the Della Robbia and the numerous churches of the city are home to great examples of ornate pulpits and beautiful organ music , the best of which are found in the churches of San Francesco, Sant ' Andrea , Holy Spirit and St. Bartolomeo in Pantano . Pistoia is home to the famous Pistoia Blues Festival in July and can boast appearances such as Bob Dylan and Santana . To celebrate the feast of San Jacopo ( St. James ) , the patron saint of Pistoia every July 25 is held in the Piazza del Duomo ' Carousel Bear ( Bear tournament ) , where the four ancient quarters of Pistoia compete in a tournament equestrian .

Pistoia has given birth to many famous people : George Rospilgoisi who became Pope Clement ( 1660-69 ) , artist and sculptor Marino Marini ( 1901-1980 ), whose works are exhibited in the Palace of Tau and the architect John Mechullucci ( 1891 - 1990) whose documents and plans are hosted in the mezzanine of City Hall .

For children , Pistoia has a small but well-run zoo and Collodi , 20 minutes , is the birthplace of Carlo Lorenzini , the author of the famous story of Pinocchio, a wooden puppet who dreams of being a real boy . The author's restored house and its grounds are immersed in a theme park on the adventures of the puppet.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Service is excellent and the host is available at the premises all the time which is reassuring.

We were given warm welcome and provided with initial basic needs ie something to eat and drink. Would recommend to my friends and we will be back again .

Close to several interesting places in Tuscany and we did all that using our car.

SUPER

  • 5 of 5

Arrivés à 2 couples pour visiter le Toscane, cette maison est idéale, très propre et il ne manque rien. Et le petit jardin permet de déjeuner dehors. De plus, Massimo nous accueille avec de petites attentions sympathiques, et il est toujours disponible pour nous rendre service.

Le site est très bien placé, près de la gare, ce qui facilite les déplacements; la ville en elle même est très intéressante culturellement, et les environs très agréable. Nous recommandons vivement ce lieu de séjour.
