SIGHTS and ATTRACTIONS
There are several historic places and beautiful spots that are located within few Km from Villa Cafaggiolo; these really worth a visit...

  1. The 11 century Benedictine Monastery of Santa Maria in Rosano. Don't miss the sung Latin Mass on Sunday morning!
  2. Vallombrosa Abbey with its surrounding forest. The forest of Vallombrosa is one of the most pleasant places around Florence, where to wander. Even on the hottest summer days, the altitude and the thickness of its woods guarantee excellent walking possibilities.
  3. The Medieval Castle at Nipozzano. Located on the top of an hill 350 meter high, the castle was one of the most powerful fortifications of the Florentine countryside and still today conserves great part of its medieval structure.
  4. Fiesole, the hill-town of Etruscan origin… an elegant village with fancy villas and its unforgettable views of Florence. A must for any visitor: the ruins of the Roman anphitheater and the stunning monastery of San Francesco.

"" Time flew by during that week we were there and I wished for another week just so I could lounge around the villa and enjoy sights and sounds of the home more.
The vistas there are superb. Lots of olive trees, rolling hills, beautiful landscaping, and the host family couldn't be nicer. I would recommend this place for sure"" Terri on Tripadvisor

"" ...we took several tours by the owner’s son Niccolo who personalized the trips to our interests, expertly guided us through the Tuscan countryside, villages and historic fortresses.
Each daylong tour included a wealth of knowledge of the history and customs of the areas we visited. We enjoyed learning about and visiting several small wineries.
We spent a day visiting medieval castles and another tour highlighted Renaissance fortresses.
The personal anecdotes of historical and modern Tuscany Niccolo provided made each tour extremely enjoyable and educational"" Erik on Tripadvisor
