Villa Viviani, located on the hill of Settignano, a 15-minute bus ride away from Florence city center, is an historical abode: the most ancient part of the building dates back to the 13th century, when the Tanagli family built a luxurious house, giving the possibility to admire the city of Florence and its surroundings from a highpoint. The Villa, once named 'Belvedere' for its panoramic position, passed to the Cerretani family in 1600 who further contributed to enriching the character of the Villa. At the end of 19th century the Villa was inherited by the Viviani della Robbia family. In 1892 the Villa was inhabited by Mark Twain and his family and it was in this inspirational location that he wrote "Puddn'head Wilson". Mark Twain himself described the Villa exalting its views, the flowered terrace and its "friendly and warm" atmosphere. The flagship of the Villa remains the splendid Italian style garden that enjoys a breathtaking sight of Florence and the surrounding countryside.

Price per person: € 85,00 (VAT included). Bus transfer is included. The meeting point will be communicated at a later stage.
