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

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.

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
