Collodi, the town that gave the Florentine Carlo Lorenzetti ( the writer of “Pinocchio”) his pseudonym, is interesting for adults and children alike.
Meeting with the guide and visit to:
-Giardino di Villa Garzoni, it is a splendid Baroque garden embellished in the 18th century with statues and clever water games. Well-known and appreciated in Europe at the end of the 18th century, is still today one of the most beautiful gardens in Europe (admission fee )
-Parco di Pinocchio, you can relive the famous story of Pinocchio walking through this park. Some of the best known scenes have been recreated with the use of bronze statues and plastic representations so you can be part of and experience first- hand Pinocchio’s many adventures
(admission fee )
-Historical centre, the higher part of this town is worthy of mention and certainly not to be missed. Its medieval centre with a maze of winding little streets, steps and very steep paths is the ideal setting for a fairy tale
