Pisa with its world-wide famous LEANING TOWER is certainly one of the most visited towns in Italy and it keeps attracting thousands of visitors each year ! Should you have on your agenda a visit to Pisa and to its famous Leaning Tower, this tour could be the right one for you because it will give you the possibility to spend a good one hour and a half in Pisa for visiting the beautiful “Piazza dei Miracoli – Square of the Miracles” the splendid architectonic ensemble, that encloses the most important monuments of the city of Pisa i.e. the monumental cemetery, the Baptistery, the Duomo and the world-wide LEANING TOWER. After Pisa we will move on to VILLA BONAPARTE (related to Napoleon Bonaparte).
The origins of Villa Bonaparte are for sure quite ancient and noble, and that is also where the winery is based. The first documented information on the manor house is to be found in the writings of Flaminio Bonaparte, dating the house back to 1534. A later enlargement and reconstruction, during the 1700s transformed the building into the villa as we see it today. The farming of the olive groves and of the vineyards dates back to the same period. During the second half of the XIX century the property was taken over by the Ridolfi family, a noble family from Florence, and it is just Cosimo Ridolfi a passionate agronomist and member of the “Academy of the Georgofili” in Florence, who applied new and innovative techniques of farming here and he was also the one who built the wine cellar. A more recent restoration, aimed at the preservation of the style, it has now revived the villa to its former splendor.
Once arrived at Villa Bonaparte, we will have first the possibility to visit the garden, part of the villa and the cellar along with the “vinsantaia”. After that, we will move on to the tasting area where you will have the pleasure to enjoy a delicious and tasty, four courses Lunch, accompanied by the wines of the winery !
