bu means of the A1 "Autosole" Motorway (Barberino del Mugello
exit), of two State roads (SS 65 Bolognese and SS 302 Faentina) or
of the old panoramic rail line linking Firenze in Tuscany to Faenza
in Emilia-Romagna (still served on some occasions by historic steam
trains) is the perfect location for an unforgettable holiday in the
celebrated Tuscan countryside, just a few dozen minutes' drive from
the best loved art towns and cities on both sides of the Apennines.
Mugello itself is full of artistic and historic heritage: country
churches, roadside shrines, castles and villas, small museums and
old water mills to name but a few. From Mugello came the Medici dinasty,
whose castles (Cafaggiolo and Trebbio) still attest to their magnificence.
Mugello also gave birth to such great artists as Giotto, Beato Angelico,
Andrea del Castagno and, more recently, the poet Dino Campana and
the art nouveau ceramists of the Chini family.
The local farming tradition, whose ancient origins are still firmly
rooted and lovingly cherished in the area, provides a variety of quality
agricoltural produce - let us just mention the world-class PGI (Protected
Geographical Indication) Mugello chestnut for one - which throughout
the year are celebrated with a rich programme of agricultural shows,
food fairs and folk events. Meanwhile, shopaholics and fashion addicts
will find a treasure cove in the newly launched Factory Outlet at
Barberino di Mugello, offering the best brands at hugely discounted

bike or on horseback. But Mugello is more than just hiking, horse
riding and bicycle touring: the Mugello International Racing Circuit
attracts thousands of enthusiasts of two and four-wheeled racing competitions,
while the Bilancino lake offers sandy beaches and water sports of
all kinds including fishing, as well as hosting several shows, sports
fairs and naturalistic events. Not to mention a choice of swimming
pools and and tennis lawns, a gliding club and an airfield, archery
