Less than 1 hour from Florence, nestled in nature, lies the small village of Marradi. The central position of the town, situated between Florence, Faenza, and the Adriatic coast, contributed to the urban development and the growth of the town in the past. In fact, travelers who reach Marradi by train, along the panoramic Faentina Railway line, are always pleasantly surprised by the make-up of the town, which sees beautiful streets lined in villas and elegant Palaces, quite uncommon for a mountain village.
