Visit Tuscany’s World Heritage Medici Gardens up to 2 October 2022 to discover the treasures of the Medici villas and gardens, their historical and rare botanical species and the dances and fashions that were all the rage in the days of the Medicis.

Themed workshops and itineraries

The World Heritage site Medici Villas in Tuscany is part of the Tuscany Region’s Officina Mirabilis project, a programme of more than 50 activities that explore the different aspects of life in the Medici villas through workshops, historical visits, thematic itineraries featuring botany and landscaping, and workshops on Renaissance dances and decorative arts.

Tuscany has 14 World Heritage villas and gardens

Since 2013, fourteen of the Medici villas and gardens in Tuscany have been recognized as World Heritage Sites. Scattered throughout the region they represent a unique system of residences that co-exist in harmony with nature and are dedicated to leisure, the arts and knowledge. Perfect examples of the synergy between architecture, gardens and the surrounding area, these Medici villas inspired princely residences throughout Italy and Europe.

“We are enhancing Tuscany’s cultural history”

"With Officina Mirabilis we are enhancing these beautiful places and Tuscany’s cultural history - said the project’s president Eugenio Giani. - The villas and gardens designed and built for the Medici family were an articulated system of residences and a synthesis between art, nature and the pleasures of life at court, but also places with a spiritual and scientific life. In these residences first the Medicis, then the Lorraine and the Savoy dynasties, devoted themselves to their passions: art and patronage, nature and hunting, conviviality and the decorative arts. All of which gives us the Tuscany we can see and enjoy today.”
