About the City

Prato it’s an interesting city awaiting to be discovered. With his traditional and simply style, it offers a direct contact and a real experience to the visitors, not only related to the touristic aspects.

Due to his quieter way of life than the near Florence, Prato gives a more comfortable and more relaxing holiday to the visitors.

At the same time Prato has a lots of attractions and places to discover.

The old center and his pedestrian area are rich beautiful clothes boutiques, shops, restaurants, groceries, pubs, bar (etc.).

Also the nightlife in the city is really crisp and full of young people. Several are the locals and the entertainments in the downtown.

S. Maria delle Carceri Church

The Cathedral of S. Stefano, Piazza del Duomo

By car

The house it's only 5 minutes from the nice Prato’s old center, its main station and Florence in about 30 minutes through the motor way A11

Many others destinations in the tuscan country are not far away from the house. In fact with proximally one hour of trip, are situated:

Pistoia (20 Km), Montecatini Terme (35 Km), Lucca (65 Km), Abetone and Fiumalbo (75 Km), Viareggio, Forte dei Marmi, Tirrenia and the Famous ' Versilia' riviera (85 Km), then also Pisa and Livorno (Ferries) (85 Km), Siena and Chianti (85 Km), Arezzo (95 Km), Bologna (105 Km), La Speziae and 5 Terre (130 Km), Pienza and Cortona(135 Km), Perugia and Assisi (160 Km)

I think that it's important to suggest you 2 of the best and famous restaurants of the area, at 5 minutes from the house.

The first is restaurant Logli ,in the near Filettole village, the other is Trattoria la Fontana.

Both offer the best typical and traditional tuscan cooking and you can enjoy from there the beautiful panoramic view of Prato.Then, a little secret, in Logli Restaurant, if you order the meal in advance, you can take it away.

Perfect holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We have had a great holiday here. Every interesting city is reachable within 1 hour. If you want to visit Florence though, we recommend to take the train from Prato central station. It only takes 20 minutes and costs 2,50€ per person one way. If you´d like a heart attack though (because of the traffic in Florence)- go ahead and take the car ;-)

Andrea and Anna will give you good advises where to go (like Trattoria Fontana just down the road).

We can only recommend this holiday home. It will make you feel "at home" straight away. Everything is there. You just need to get used to the sockets :-)
