The Villa di Castello on the hills around Florence was once the elected country residence of Duke Cosimo I de’ Medici. The garden is a masterpiece of the Renaissance design.
The celebrated court artist Tribolo created the innovative design just for Cosimo and transformed the layout into a celebration of the Medici duke. Thanks to the careful restoration the garden again displays an incredible collection of rare botanical species, especially the citrus plants so dear to the Medici family.
You can easily reach the villa with private transportation (by car or taxi) in a half hour ride or we can use public transportation if you prefer. The tour of Castello gives you the opportunity to leave the hot city center with its crowds behind and enjoy the beauty of the garden almost by yourself.
I will show you every corner of the park together with the highlights such as the famous Grotto of the Animals which has amazed generations of visitors from the Renaissance age to the present day.
