    Default Siege of the Villa in Poggio a Caiano

    I have been looking at information on festivals and found this one close to Florence. I wasn't able to find a program in English but it seems like the major events happen on Saturday and Sunday with a Renaissance market all four days. Does anyone have more information? Is this a recommended activity? Is it difficult to reach by bus?

    I haven't personally gone but I've heard it is a very nice medieval/renaissance fair that takes over the small town and Medici villa.

    The pdf program that you can download here has both Italian and English and explains the story of the event: http://www.assedioallavilla.it/programma.htm

    Dates for this year are September 12-15!

    You can reach it by bus from Prato, which you can get to by bus or train from Florence.
    Here's the map for buses from Prato to Poggio a Caiano:

    You're welcome! and if you manage to go, let me know how it is - I'm "unfortunately" taking a break and going to Elba (poor me )! otherwise, it would have been interesting to go to....
