Description

In the 15C the first "second homes" came into existence. All grand Florentine families had their own villas, designed by the most prestigious architects. These include the Villa di Castello, bought by the Medici family in 1477; nowadays it houses the Accademia della Crusca, whose aim is to protect the Italian language and, a few hundred metres away, La Petraia, an old castle transformed into a villa by Buontalenti. Visit the state apartments and garden.
