The Medici family: royalty, legacy and secrecy
Minivan car service pick up and departure en-route to the “the Medici Villas”. Once outside the city gates, we find the country residences that were once owned by the Medici family. These Villas bear witness to the beauty and comforts of life in a manor. Seeking to escape from the stress and strain of life in the city, the Medici princes fled to their luxurious country manors. The Villas still preserve their splendid Italian style gardens as well as their highly elegant interiors, which include the period furniture and furnishings. The gardens, embellished with grottoes, fountains, and statues, are where the Medici relaxed away from their busy court in Florence.
