Main attractions near the house:Ponte Vecchio,Santa Maria del Fiore (Duomo);Piazzale Michelangelo; the Astrophysical Observatory; Il Giardino di Boboli;San Miniato a Monte.Florence - "Florentia", the florid, was the name given by the Romans to this small settlement located at the foot of the ancient Etruscan Fiesole and founded in the first century BC.
There is a lot of privacy as the property belongs to our family. As for the neighbourhood they are wonderful people,very discreet and respectful. What you can appreciate is the quiet place just outside the bustling Florence.The mild breeze of spring and the breathe of trees.
Galluzzo is in itself wonderful. It is not touristy but everything authentically Italian everywhere. There are some local cafes, coffee bars, restaurants, pizzarias, boutiques ( very nice prices), and a supermarket Another very big supermarket has been being built. There is a daily open air market at the end of the road . Every day except Sunday. Well worth a visit.
Despite the internal struggles, first between rival families and then between the Guelfs (loyal to the Pope) and the Ghibellines (loyal to the Emperor), from the thirteenth century onwards it began to flourish as a city of art, culture and international trading, reaching its zenith in the fifteenth century under the Signoria of Cosimo and Lorenzo de’ Medici.
The territory of Florence is the guardian of an exceptional art heritage, a splendid testimony to its history and secular civilization from Fiesole with its Roman Theater to the hills of Chianti with its parish churches, endless itineraries may in fact be followed through the country side, offering a variety of different themes and high-quality content, both of cultural value and of environmental naturalistic interest.
To visit the area around Florence we suggest to hire a car, or a moto. Distances are bigger than you may think.By carFlorence is geographically located in the middle of Italy, the main highway A1 which connect Milan to Naples, pass through Florence.To reach our house you can exit Florence Impruneta
Personally, I suggest to go to Florence city center by bus because the parking is almost impossible to find, the main parking is Santa Maria Novella, under the train station and it cost 3,50 Euro/hour.
