The Villa Medici is a large architectural complex in a mannerism style which was built for Cardinal Ricci da Montepulciano in 1540. Later on, Ferdinando de’ Medici bought it in 1576 and the Medici kept the palace in their hands until Napoleon has housed the French Academy in its walls since 1803 and till now it is still remaining as a place of active use. France has settled on an Italian territory and took such an honorable niche as an art. This fact gives an opportunity to the young artists to stay on the territory of the palace from six to eighteen months today. Be patient and keep an eye on this beauty as much as you can as far as no photos are allowed for the visitors. But some of the most pleasant bonuses you can enjoy here are an opportunity to have an unbelievable tasty lunch with prosecco at a lovely cafe on the territory and also you can stay at the palace for a night, think on it beforehand.
