Hotel Barberino del Mugello - Tuscany holidays - Mugello what to see

The Medici Mugello: the wonderful villas

The harmonious territory of Mugello has always attracted great minds and noble personalities. Some of these left traces of absolute beauty. The Medici Villas, above all, deserve a special mention, as treasures set in the greenery. Since 2013, the Medici villas and gardens in Tuscany have been recognized as World Heritage by UNESCO.

The Medici have always cultivated an authentic passion for Mugello, ideal for relaxing after the political burdens. Set in the valleys, elegant summer residences were built, far from defensive buildings but rather similar to civil dwellings.

Stay in Mugello was synonymous with holiday, now as then.

Villa Demidoff, along via Bolognese, was purchased by Francesco I de ’Medici to become a fairy tale place for his wife Bianca Cappello. Next to the villa, the Pratolino Park, the largest of the Medici estates, remains one of the most popular green areas by Florentine people. The Cafaggiolo Villa in Barberino di Mugello stands out for its beauty. Example of Renaissance architecture, Lorenzo de 'Medici - the Magnificent spent a great part of his life there. The Trebbio Castle, in the municipality of Scarperia e San Piero, boasts a crenelated tower with a wonderful view.

Discover the Medici Villas of Mugello by e-bike: give yourself a different tour, even a guided tour on request.
