The extravagant residence Castello di Sammezzano sits on top of a hill in Tuscany, Northern Italy. Originally it was built in the Moorish style in 1605 for Ximenes d’Aragona and then re-designed between 1853 and 1889. After the war the castello was used as a luxury hotel until closure in the mid to late 1990’s. It was abandoned until April 2012 when the FPXA committee was formed, aiming to promote and enhance the castle.

Sammezzano castle, Florence, Italy South of Florence there is this AMAZING castle. 365 rooms... all different from one another. Sadly.. you can't view them without filling out a form on their website and attending RARE openings for viewing. Holy Tuscany wishlist.
