  • For lovers of Italian gardens it is definitely not to be missed for the richness of the plants at home and for the perfect geometry of hedges and avenues, all enriched by the fountain of Hercules and Anteo and the cave of the animals. The woodland above the garden is also pleasant

  • The Villa Medicea di Castello, also called Villa Reale, is currently home to the prestigious Accademia della Crusca, so inside you can not visit, while the extraordinary Italian Garden is accessible, second in importance and extension only to Boboli. It is truly a beautiful garden, unfortunately (or fortunately) not very well known by tourists as it is far from the city centre, it is located in the back of the villa and extends over a large area in slight incline. At the bottom of the actual Italian garden, there is a terrace from which you can enjoy the view from above and observe the perfect geometry of the shapes, with the fountain of the Tribolo in the center. There is an exceptional collection of citrus fruits that the Medici particularly loved. At the bottom of the terrace there is also the cave of the animals, also works this Tribolo. At the top is the wooded area, and, on both sides, two small secret gardens, enclosed by walls. The whole thing is very well maintained and cared for and is open for free.
