The villa and the grounds are beautiful so even if you cannot make one of the times given, the villa grounds which can be visited on your own. Visits to the villa are on the hour only as part of a group, formed once you’re there but at all other times visits to the museum has to be reserved. These weekends offer the opportunity to just show up and see the museum as well – which offers stupendous paintings of still-lifes from the Medici collections, all works of art in their own right.
