Prato s the second largest a city in Tuscany. Yet it doesn’t seem to attract a high level of tourism. With most of the shops closed on Mondays, the streets of the older walled section of town appear empty. Especially, when compared to the buzzing cobblestoned walkways of Rome.
Here against the back drop of Retaia mountain you can enjoy a quiet walk along the Bisenzio river then moments later be dining at an outdoor cafe.
