Florence Off the Beaten Path

Museo della Natura Morta and the Medici Villa of Poggio a Caiano (Ongoing)

Piazza de'Medici, 14

Poggio a Caiano, Tuscany

A maximum of 20 people are admitted every half hour to visit the Museum of Still Life paintings(the only of it's kind in the world). Passionately collected by four generations of the Medici family, it is housed in their summer residence a short distance outside of Florence. You can visit the grand rooms in the villa itself and the surrounding gardens every half hour before or after the visit to the museum. Both are free and open from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily. Closed the second and third Monday of each month. For more information visit
