The places of interest are almost too numerous to mention.Florence, Fiesole, Siena, Arezzo, Lucca, Pisa, the Chianti area, the Mugello. You can choose to explore the countryside or learn more about the history of the Medici family, Michelangelo, Brunelleschi, just to mention a few of the historical figures who have made Tuscany what it is today.
We are just 15km from Florence in the area of Pontassieve which is 10km south of us and halfway between Santa Brigida, in the hills behind us, and the village of Molino del Piano.
The closest shops are in Molino. In the summer there are many local festivals in the surrounding villages where you can eat well at reasonable prices and enjoy the cool of the evening. There is no lack of restaurants and pizzerias in the area surrounding us.
