Mugello - Tuscany Holidays

Mugello, located north of Florence, shows a landscape with a wide belt of mountains and hills sloping down to the Sieve River. In this area, there are several small towns and isolated farms scattered throughout the territory. Mugello is known for hosting an international racetrack, where the Moto GP Italian Grand Prix takes place every year. The circuit belongs to Ferrari (the Sports Cars manufacturer); therefore, it is not unusual that you can watch live to tests or races of both sports cars and motorcycles. The Mugello area falls entirely under the authority of the metropolitan city of Florence. Traditionally, it includes the towns of Barberino di Mugello, Borgo San Lorenzo, Scarperia and San Piero and Vicchio.

Over the centuries, members of the Medici family left signs of their power in their territory.

In Scarperia and San Piero, you can visit the 16th century Medicean Fortress of San Martino; or, the Villa medicea del Trebbio, by Michelozzo Michelozzi.

In Barberino di Mugello, don’t miss the Medici’s Villa Cafaggiolo, and the Church and the Convent of Bosco ai Frati, with a wooden Crucifix attributed to Donatello.

In Mugello, you’ll find also architectural and decorative examples of the Liberty style, thanks to the activity of Galileo Chini.

The Mugello museums are scattered on the territory and organized in a systemic way. The most interesting ones are:

  • Naturalistic system – Museum of the historical landscape of the Moscheta Apennines, in Firenzuola.
  • Demo-ethno-anthropological system – Vine and wine museum, in Rufina.
  • System of historical-artistic assets – Civic Museum of the Chini Manifattura, in Borgo San Lorenzo.
  • The Giotto’s House – Colle di Vespignano – Vicchio.
  • Archaeological Heritage System – Upper Mugello Archaeological Museum

As said, Mugello is home to the world famous for the “Autodromo Internazionale” (International Circuit), also known as Mugello Circuit.

First of all Trekking. The local hiking system connects the Mugello mountains to the hills of Val di Sieve. It is a system of paths forming one main ring, and twenty-two secondary rings connected to it.

In addition to trekking routes, bikers can ride the “Mugello in Bike” cycle touring district, since 2013.

But, above all, you can watch live tests or races of both sports cars and motorbikes at the International Mugello Circuit.

Mugello’s gastronomic tradition offers simple flavors, linked to the use of so-called poor but genuine ingredients, such as oil, bread, meat from local farms and fresh vegetables from the countryside.

Being so closely linked to the freshness of the ingredients, you will discover that most of the typical dishes of Mugello gastronomy are seasonals.

During Carnival, you’ll taste the “Cenci”, the “Migliaccio”, and the “Pan di Ramerino”.

In Spring, look for the famous and delicious Potato “Tortelli”.

In Summer, taste dishes based on duck; while Fall is the period of wild boar “Pappardelle” and mushroom dishes.

Finally, during Christmas, don’t miss a glass of Gemma d’Abete, the local liqueur from the friars of the convent of Monte Senario.

Among the wines, in addition to the typical Chianti productions, Pomino DOC stands out.
