About the City

Prato it’s an interesting city awaiting to be discovered. With his traditional and simply style, it offers a direct contact and a real experience to the visitors, not only related to the touristic aspects.

Due to his quieter way of life than the near Florence, Prato gives a more comfortable and more relaxing holiday to the visitors.

At the same time Prato has a lots of attractions and places to discover.

The old center and his pedestrian area are rich beautiful clothes boutiques, shops, restaurants, groceries, pubs, bar (etc.).

Also the nightlife in the city is really crisp and full of young people. Several are the locals and the entertainments in the downtown.
