The walk leads to the discovery of the Estate, among age-old oaks and grassy expanses, breathtaking views and places that were once fundamental to the life and development of the community, such as the old icehouse or the burraia, a small building shaded by large holm oaks where butter was once processed.
Visitors can discover where the numerous agricultural activities of the complex once took place: the spinning mill, the carpenter’s workshop with its small forge and the vat-room, the historic underground cellars from which one can access the part where wine-making took place. At the end of the tour, the large stables and barns are witnesses to a past world, which the owners are committed to preserving and passing on to future generations.
It is possible to conclude or precede the visit with lunch at the Locanda di Camugliano, a restaurant with an atmosphere of times gone by, housed in one of the estate’s old farmhouses.

Camugliano is one of the most important estates in Tuscany. Even today it represents one of the rare places where everything has been preserved and handed down with continuity and passion. Its secular history is intertwined with the events of the characters of the Niccolini family, owner since 1637. The charm of other times and the strong link with the territory shine through when visiting the park and the buildings adjacent to the Medici villa, maximum expression of the intertwining of life in the villa and rural civilization.
