    Only one mile from Porta Romana square (Piazzale di Porta Romana), a historical gate into the city of Florence, this typical Florentine villa is situated on the hill of 'Poggio Imperiale' immersed in the beauty of the Tuscan countryside surrounded by olive groves, gardens and fruit trees.
    The villa looks out onto the gorgeous Florentine hillside including the Arcetri observatory where Galileo Galilei continued his astronomical research after being called to Florence in 1610 by Cosimo II dei Medici.

    The villa dates back to the XV century and the whole property is of much interest to the city of Florence being listed under “properties of particular cultural interest of the historical Park of the hills of Florence” in the Regulatory city plan of the city. The villa and its garden...

A beautiful villa exquisite both inside, and out. with all the modern amenities, and old world charm outside. The 8 of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The teak table on the patio was a wonderful spot, with a perfect view. Great for meals or just wine and cheese. more
