Prato is not talked about as much as other cities in Tuscany, but it has some classic old world architecture. Prato is the location for Villa Medicea di Poggio a Caiano. This is Lorenzo the Magnificent's beautiful summer palace, and it is the basis for every country house ever built. The home for it's time was revolutionary - a beautiful home not a fortress. It's filled with light and vistas from every room. The frescoes, furniture and silk wall coverings are lovely.
