Imagine a picture-postcard village with an ancient entrance door, a little church exuding spirituality and a UNESCO World Heritage Medici villa on a hilltop towering over a sea of olive trees and vineyards. This is what you will experience visiting Artimino. A few kilometres away lies a Renaissance masterpiece, the Medici villa of Poggio a Caiano, known as Villa Ambra. You will discover the homes of the Medici family, visit the Artimino Estate immersed in the green hills of the Florentine Chianti, tasting good food accompanied by excellent wines. A day full of Tuscan culture and flavors.
You will depart from your hotel on board a comfortable van with a licensed professional driver. The first stop of the tour will lead you to the village of Artimino, where a professional guide will accompany you through a tour of the old village and the beautiful Medici villa La Ferdinanda, also known as the villa of the hundred chimneys due to a series of chimneys of various shapes placed on the roof. After the visit you will enjoy your private wine tasting and light lunch in the Villa.
The itinerary continues onward to Poggio a Caiano, site of another beautiful Medici villa, Villa Ambra, a cherished place of Lorenzo the Magnificent who had ordered its construction.
