Prato Travel Guide: 31 reviews and 58 photos

Prato, a small, but typical Tuscan town is located app. 20 km north of Florence. That makes it a perfect base for day trips around Tuscany. Tourists are rare and stop here only for a day or less.
The historical centre is nice, but half a day should be enough to see most of it.
The city is known for its textile industry, which started to decline a few decades ago. The textile might be the reason that attracted quite a lot of Chinese imigrants.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great off-tourist base to explore Tuscany.
  • Cons:Too many one-way streets.
  • In a nutshell:Nice for a day.
