It’s incredibly versatile. With 2060m2 of possibilities, you could create a dazzling al fresco wedding feast or welcome up to 600 guests for cocktails at the ultimate garden party. Your guests can gaze out over the Tuscan hills, delight in discovering the ancient grotto and fountain or enjoy the shade and character of our venerable trees. 

The most spectacular views of Florence and the Tuscany countryside must surely be from the Villa’s Terrace. An event staged here is one your guests will savor and remember, with the opportunity to chat, sip drinks and watch the sun set over the Duomo.

The Medici Villa Terrace is 228m2, so there’s plenty of room for up to 220 guests for cocktails, or perhaps wine and food tastings. A wonderful space in its own right, it can also provide a highly convenient extension to   the Medici Villa Granaio Banquet Room, which opens out onto the Terrace.
