The marvellous Pistoia is a 40minute journey from Florence by train. Not many people know just how pleasant and rewarding a visit to this city can be.
Pistoia is tucked at the foot of the beautiful Apennines. The ramparts dating from the Middle Ages have not been able to contain the town which extends beyond these old walls. A stroll around the pedestrianized historic centre is a lovely way to spend your time and its peaceful setting means you won´t be fighting for elbow room like in other cities.
