About Carmignano

If you're an art, culture, food or wine lover, you're in the right place!

A 30-minute car ride from Florence, in the Montalbano Hills, Carmignano offers marvelous views over the Tuscan countryside and its major cities, and a proximity to cultural and artistic heritage. Originally an Etruscan settlement, Carmignano is now home to the production of one of Tuscany's most ancient wines. The famous Medici Villa in Poggio a Caiano that is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site is just a 10-minute car ride away. Also Vinci, the birthplace of Leonardo da Vinci, can be reached within 30 minutes by car.

About the fortress
La Rocca di Carmignano

In a century-old history, the fortress La Rocca di Carmignano has been the object of many disputes and numerous battles. Above the valley and with perfect views over Florence, Prato, and Pistoia, its position is indeed privileged.

Today, the fortress is the place of several events and a refuge of peace and quiet throughout the rest of the year. While the fortress opens its gate for visitors every day in the summer, the views from the walking path around it are always splendid. Especially the sea of lights in the valley during a clear night is spectacular. But see for yourself: La Rocca di Carmignano and its walking path are right across from our B&B!

You're looking for a day trip through the surrounding area? Florence, Vinci, the Medici Villa in Poggio a Caiano, Prato, Pistoia, Lucca, Pisa and Siena are among the places that can be easily reached from our B&B in Carmignano.
