Demidoff Villa Park is one of the most beautiful in Tuscany. It is famous especially for the Giant of the Apennines, the big statue built in 1580 by Giambologna, that depicts a mythological figure in the act to rise. The Park, built in the second half of the Renaissance from the Duke Francesco I dei Medici, is also rich of fountains, statues and works of art. To get to the Park we will take first the train from Montecatini, and then the bus from the station of Santa Maria Novella station. The tour lasts 4/5 hours.
