Carmignano can find, in the hilly region of Montalbano rich in vines and olives, a beautiful countryside of gently sloping hills which preserves an atmosphere of calmness and serenity. It is situated in a strategic position within the confines of the territory Pistoia, Florence and Prato, and their historical centres can be reached in a short time. Carmignano is interesting not only on account of the country scenery, but also due to the archaeological features which have been recovered in the reputed Etruscan zone; to the architecture represented by the Medici villas at Artimino and Poggio a Caiano; and to the church of San Michele, an ancient Franciscan monastery constructed in gothic style with an attractive cloister. To this church a colonnade was added during the Renaissance era and it now houses pictures of rare beauty, the foremost of which is the splendid “Visitation” by Pontormo. The region around Carmignano has many businesses and farms producing a distinctive wine – the "brilliant Carmignano" as it has been defined for centuries by distinguished connoisseurs. Also the olive oil produced is of the highest quality. Carmignano is the ideal place for those who love trekking and horse riding as it is possible to follow several different tracks in natural surroundings: these tracks run alongside a vineyard and an olive grove, passing by an an avenue of cypresses and emerging into a wood composed of Mediterranean vegetation.
