Medici Villas in the UNESCO World Heritage List
The Villas are one of the UNESCO sites in Italy. They witness the power of the Medici Family and of their influence on the European Culture.
They symbolize the perfect mix between palaces and countryside, where in ancient times people used to go to relax and enjoy their free time. As a matter of fact, the gardens have a prominent role in the Villas architecture. They were the focus of the activities and contribued in the development of aesthetics during the Italian Reinassance.
One above all is the Boboli Garden, which still today offers its visitors a unique panorama of Florence and a green oasis where beauty and hamrony reign.
