Things to do in Caprese Michelangelo, Italy

Caprese Michelangelo is a small village with a population of just 1,600 (approx), and most visitors come purely to visit the birthplace of the village’s most famous son. There are several sights which focus on the life and times of Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni, including the Michelangelo Museum and Library – which is an absolute must-see for anyone holidaying in the area. The museum is housed in his birthplace, the Casa del Podesta, and displays life-sized copies of his masterpieces and other works by some of the most famous contemporary sculptors.

A couple of notable churches also attract a regular stream of visitors, most notably the 13th century Church of St. John the Baptist – where Michelangelo was baptized, and the San Paolo a Monna. The abbey of San Martino a Tifi also warrants a visit.

The village is ensconced in chestnut groves, and the chestnut is the local product, with tasting sessions are held on a regular basis. This culminates with the annual October wine and food event, which is regarded as the main event in the village’s calendar. The chestnut groves and surrounding woods are a great place for a stroll on a sunny day, though you will get to see a lot more if you take up the option of horse riding.

Owners have made excellent use of outdoor areas to create beautiful terraces and gardens with outdoor sofas to relax on. We are keen walkers and the fact that the property is set in 100 acres of its own private land meant plenty of places to walk and explore. Owners were extremely helpful and paid attention to detail. Pool was fantastic!

We were very impressed with the kitchen extension and the outdoor bbq/eating area, made the house even more comfortable. Also the new shower is fantastic!Enjoyed the peace and quiet of the area while having fun in the pool and the garden. Managed to visit Florence this time which was absolutely stunning, although a day isn't long enough to take it all in. Thank you again.

We shared the property with another family and we had plenty of space. The children had lots of fun in the large heated pool and the outdoor terrace was great for eating meals together and barbecues. The owners were very helpful and we liked their recommendations for restaurants. A great family holiday home.
