The position of this holiday house in Tuscany, right on the border with Emilia-Romagna makes it perfect for exploring this lovely part of Italy.
You can head south to Florence and its airport, 45km away. Florence is the principal Tuscan city, and the world's most celebrated storehouse of Renaissance art and architecture. The dome of the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore dominates the city's roofscape and the great Piazza del Duomo at its feet, ringed with cafes, dominates life at street level. Florence also has some of Italy's best-loved palaces and churches. Cross the famous Ponte Vecchio and visit the Boboli Gardens; enjoy the Uffizi Gallery which houses a celebrated and famous art collection or see Michelangelo's famous statue of David at the Accademia di Belle Arti.
Or strike north into Emilia-Romagna. This is the heart of northern Italy and boasts real treasures for the visitor. There is Bologna itself, the gastronomic capital of Italy, with its bustling markets and superb architecture. There is Modena, with its magnificent Romanesque cathedral. And the superbly preserved mosaics of Ravenna.
There’s lots more besides of course. The castle’s unrivalled position makes deciding what to see and what to leave out a pleasant problem. Please use the link below to request further information. Thank you.
