1. Florence Area Castle at Tuscany

Italy is one of the most fascinating, beautiful countries in Europe (though one may argue that pretty much all of the countries in the continent are charming and wonderful in their own way), and this castle in Tuscany embodies that charm.

The castle is a particularly interesting structure from an architectural point of view as it combines military and villa styles with a central fortress flanked by elegant 16th century stucco villa facades.
It was during the 16th century, when the castle was owned by the
Ciaini family that the stucco villa facades were added to the existing stone fortress andtower. The Ciaini family were one of the wealthiest Florentine families of their time and were known for their patronage of the arts and architecture.
