Medici Villas and gardens recently become a part of World Heritage for UNESCO. Ten out of fourteen beautiful gardens are located in the province of Florence or very close to the city.
Others are in the Mugello area. The region got its name after the family, which originated from the area. It is worth visiting Villa di Cafaggiolo and Villa del Trebbio.
During the time of the Grand Duke (16th century),all others villas were built, such as Villa di Cerreto Guidi, Villa Medici in Fiesole and the neoclassical Villa di Poggio Imperiale.
Moving further on there you can find two wonderful gardens, one in Florence - the Boboli Gardens, and the other one out of the city - the Medici Park of Pratolino.
