That was the place where Lorenzo The Magnificent and all the Medici family used to come during the holidays (and more). Now is a fantastic and suggestive place to visit! Absolutely recommended.

We had several receptions here and a gorgeous banquet on the lawn in connection with a scientific conference. The setting is breathtaking, and the building is beautiful. Their local wines are delicious.
