Castello di Vincigliata
While exploring the green Tuscan countryside around Florence, there are two places near to Settignano that can be visited by prior arrangement. Coming from Olmo, taking the road from Vincigliata that cuts through dense woodland, one arrives at the old medieval castle of Vincigliata, completely reconstructed in the 19th century in neo-Gothic style. A little further on, one finds the gate of Villa I Tatti, which is part of Harvard University's Florence Campus. The villa's last proprietor, Bernard Berenson, brought fame to the villa by building up a considerable collection of Italian art in accordance with his own cultural tastes.
