The romantic park and lake of the columns

Discover the Queen’s Park, around the lake of the colums, a place full of history and natural charm.

The pathways wind throughout the Fattoria di Maiano estate. The itinerary is specially designed to introduce to our visitors the animals that live in their natural habitat: Limousine cows, a bull and Amiata donkeys. Those animals will captivate you with their friendliness and docility. Exceptionally included in the “Safari tour”, a visit to the charming “Laghetto delle Colonne”, situated at the heart of the estate, whose name celebrates the fact that the quarry at its centre is reputed to have provided the columns for the church of San Lorenzo in Florence. Among the many illustrious visitors, was Queen Victoria who sketched the lake of the columns while staying at the Temple Leader’s villa.

The same tour can be held also by night, when you will be charmed by a special atmosphere: you will discover and admire the wildlife – foxes, deer, porcupines, pheasants and many other odd animals

We assure: amazing views of the city of Florence by unusual corners of the Tuscan landscape, out of the caothic traffic life and  a great fun.
