Located away from the city center, Villa La Petraia is one of the most beautiful buildings that belonged to the Medici family.
Villa Petraia became the property of the Medici family in the 16th century. Medici expanded the territory of the villas, adjoining the park -the pearl of landscape art.
They built three-layered terrace with a pond on the first one and the villa itself on the top. Behind the villa grotto and grove are located.
