Villa Bobolino is nestled in the beautiful backdrop of the Tuscan hills, only 28km from Florence, offering stunning views of the valley and countryside.

Only 4km away is the medieval hilltop town of Montelupo Fiorentino, known for its ceramic production and quality Chianti wine. This town is a charming place to spend time in authentic surroundings and there is a good choice of traditional restaurants and bars as well as many useful amenities and supermarkets.

Golf lovers have plenty of choice in this area, with Golf Club Montelupo only a short drive away as well as options such as Circolo Golf dell’Ugolino and Castelfalfi Golf Club slightly further away. There are also many opportunities to appreciate the gorgeous Tuscan countryside, with many fantastic walking and cycling trails as well as horse-riding stables within a short drive. And not to forget all the local vineyards, a wine tasting and tour is a must in this famous wine region!

Obviously not to be overlooked is Florence, cradle of the Renaissance! A truly enchanting city packed full of world-class art, architectural masterpieces, and gourmet Tuscan cuisine. Surprisingly small, you can visit everything this wonderful city has to offer by foot. Prepare to be seduced by the grandeur of Brunelleschi’s red cathedral dome on Piazza del Duomo and intrigued by the tales of how the Medici family boosted the Renaissance and produced as many as four Popes!

Other nearby towns of note include Empoli (8km), full of history and culture with plenty of museums and galleries to explore, and San Miniato (18km), a delightful town between Pisa and Florence famous for its white truffles. In fact, Villa Bobolino is in the ideal location to explore many traditional Tuscan towns such as San Gimignano (37km), Volterra (58km)and Greve (40km) – you will be sure to get a real taste for the beauty this region has to offer!

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

There are so many interesting places to explore in the area. A highlight is cycling along the City Walls of Lucca, 58km away,  a famous tree-lined fortification that surrounds the city. This is a family-favourite activity and the 4.9 km loop is safe enough for little ones. The bike path is wide, making it easy to cycle, and from 12 metres high, you’ll have the most breath-taking views as you explore on two wheels. 

Other exciting trips include visiting the leaning tower of Pisa (62km) and riding up the funicular railway to the dramatic setting of Montecatini Terme with its fountains, spa and shops.

The choice of places to visit in Florence can be overwhelming. Start off by viewing the city from above, from Piazzale Michelangelo or from the top of the cathedral dome. Taking in the main artistic sites can be balanced with a trip to the magnificent Boboli gardens for a stroll or picnic. After a morning admiring artworks at the Uffizi gallery, the promise of a generous helping of creamy gelato in a cone or large bowl of fresh pasta at a local trattoria cannot fail to delight children of all ages.

Other highlights for kids in Florence include the Museo Galileo, a hands-on science museum with a lot of interactive exhibits and live demonstrations for kids of all ages! And just outside of Florence, you can find Parco Avventura Il Gigante, a climbing park set in a forest and features rope bridges, swings and zip lines.
