Prato

Prato is a large town a few kilometers from Florence, which owes its growth and importance to a large textile factory that has made it a landmark in Europe from 800 and that can be experienced in the halls of the Textile Museum.


The history of the city is clearly oldest and witnessed by a beautiful historic centre where stands the Cathedral of St. Stephen, in Romanesque style with white and green marble, and the Emperor's Castle, the most northern building built under Frederick II of Swabia in the thirteenth century.


Prato is a good travel destination for lovers of avant-garde art thanks to the Center for Contemporary Art 'Luigi Pecci' and the ‘Cantieri Culturali di Officina Giovani’, youth exhibition area in the ex public slaughter area. A lot of villas and numerous protected green areas are in the surroundings of Prato.


An hotel in Prato allows you to easily reach the center of Florence and to know the heart of one of the most important activities that have made Tuscany famous in the world.
