You can find Vincigliata Castle between Florence and Fiesole, a few minutes from the centre of Florence, on top of a hill, in a secluded position because immersed in green woods with magnificent views over the city.
The first time Vincigliata Castle was mentioned is in year 1031 in a contract registered in Florence archives. Its decline started in the 17th century but thanks to a long and complete restoration in neo-Gothic style started in the 19th century. The result can be currently admired and enjoyed only during private events, the castle not being open to the public.
The gardens located on a panoramic terrace welcome guests arriving through the entrance and are a perfect setting for a ceremony or welcome cocktail.
Dinners are organized on the gardens too but the inside courtyard and the arched Loggia area with the right lights at night creates a unique and romantic atmosphere for a sit down elegant dinner. Guests are allowed to stroll around the halls of the castle that boasts original drawing rooms with original furniture, frescoed halls and antique arms hall.
Read this amazing legend about Bianca:
Bianca was a pretty girl admired and courted by men for her beauty, but her heart belonged to one man only.
He was the son of the family’s arch-enemy, but their love seamed to family feud.
The day of the wedding, Bianca went up to the tower awaiting the arrival of her spouse, but she saw signed her destiny.
Riding towards his future wife he was assailed by his brothers and killed before the eyes of Bianca.
The story goes that Bianca died of broken heart, dressed still in her white wed attire. Since that day her spirit roams among the walls of the castle, and she protects all loves, especially impossible ones.
