Poggio a Caiano
Poggio a Caiano, the city of the Medici Villas’ queen.
Poggio a Caiano is known for many gems, but one in particular is the Medici Villa. The “Bel Paese” (meaning “beautiful village”), located on the banks of the Ombrone river, strongly identifies itself with the magnificent Medici residence. The Villa, commissioned by Lorenzo the Magnificent, got the name “Ambra”, recalling a myth that gave the place even more value and charm.
