Irresposable ! We went there and was closed. The page had not alerts about supposed maintenance jobs. The schedule at the main door indicated that must be opened to Public....I strongly recommend double check (with a phone call) because it is frequent in Italy.

We had the park almost to ourselves. A wonderful break from Florence's crowded streets. Easy to get there. The giant is magnificent!

This is such an underrated place. The park is gorgeous and offers an amazing walk seeing all the grottos, statues and then, of course, the artistic masterpiece, The Appennine Colossus. It's free and also had a rose garden, amongst other areas where you can relax...More

We drove past this gem but thankfully asked for directions in the village. If you love peace and serenity, this UNESCO site is the place for you. Under-advertised, free and relatively unheard of, it formed one of the highlights of our Tuscan holiday. We ambled...More
