Prato was born in the 11th century from the union of the two villages of Borgo al Cornio and Castrum Prati. Some findings testify that the territory of Prato was inhabitated already since the Paleolithic Age. The plain was subsequently occupied by the Etruscans and the Romans. In the course of time, Prato was dominated by Pistoia and Florence before being elevated to city status in 1653. Prato stands at the foot of the Monte della Retaia, which is part of the chain called Calvana, where the provinces of Prato and Florence have recently created a protected area. The Bisenzio river, which flows across the town, and the Ombrone pistoiese (Pistoia Ombrone) constitute the borders of the province. Although Prato cannot boast as rich an artistic heritage as neighboring Florence it nevertheless has interesting monuments, squares and museums. Visit Prato and its province and reserve by now your ideal accommodation with us: hotels, camping, residences, bed & breakfast, apartments, hostels or farmhouses.
