Pratolino, well known for its ancient Medici villa, today called Villa Demidoff, whose beautiful park (which can be visited from May to September) contains the splendid statue of the Appennine by Giambologna, is situated north of Florence on the Via Bolognese. The delightful fifteenth century church of San Cresci a Macioli stands just outside the village while Fontebuona and Vaglia can be reached continuing on from Pratolino on the road for the Futa pass.
