Villa Medicea "Ambra" di Poggio a Caiano Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum
The best surviving example of a quintessential Tuscan villa, Villa Medicea "Ambra" was built in 1479 and altered in the 18C-19C (pediment and staircase). Many rooms were decorated in the 19C for King Vittorio Emanuele II. Note the unusual coffered ceiling in the magnificent first floor drawing room and among the frescoes those by Pontormo representing Pomona and Vertumnus (god of Spring). A Still-Life museum (second floor) has over 200 works from the 16C-18C, drawn from the Medici collections.
