About Prato

Prato is connected by regular trains to Florence (30min), Pistoia (20min), Pisa (1.5hrs), Lucca (1hr) and Versilia (1.5hrs). 

Yet to be transformed by mass tourism, Prato is the perfect environment for immersion in Italian language and culture. With a population of over 195,000, Prato is the second-largest city in Tuscany (after Florence). Like many cities in Europe, Prato has a multicultural community. This diversity is reflected in the cultural, artistic and economic life of the city.

Dating back to medieval times, Prato is known for its textile industry and, more recently, the 'fast fashion' sector.

The city has a rich historical and artistic patrimony, including:

  • a mid-thirteenth century castle built by the Hohenstaufen Emperors
  • medieval walls enclosing the ancient city centre
  • a Romanesque-cum-Gothic cathedral dedicated to Saint Stephen, with an external pulpit by Donatello and Michelozzo
  • the church of Santa Maria delle Carceri by Giuliano da Sangallo, with a Greek cross plan
  • Palazzo Datini, the late fourteenth century home of the famous 'Merchant of Prato', Francesco Datini
  • Palazzo Pretorio, the former city hall of Prato, now a museum with a collection of about 3000 items from the fourteenth to the twentieth century, including works by Donatello, Filippo Lippi and Filippino Lippi
  • Museo del Tessuto, the largest cultural centre in Italy dedicated to the promotion of historical and contemporary textile production and art

The major sites are located within the city's medieval walls and in easy walking distance of our centre. For places of interest and other useful information in English, view the Città di Prato website.

Prato is also home to the prestigious Contemporary Art Centre 'Luigi Pecci' and to many theatres, including the highly acclaimed avant-garde Metastasio Theatre.


Art Hotel Milano



Art Hotel Milano is the central heart of the philosophy that animates the ART HOTEL GROUP, in which modern art is the protagonist of a new concept of hospitality.

A hotel in the very heart of the city of Prato, located close to the medieval walls, facing the Bisenzio river and its 53 km cycle path, a few steps from the Castle of Emperor Federico II, the fascinating Museum of Woven and close by Monash University International.

Hotel President



The Hotel President Prato is a reinterpretation of an urban space with a strong character.

At 200 meters from the historic centre and 600 meters from the railway station, it is the perfect location both for business travellers and for those who want to discover the ancient central streets, beautiful squares, churches and museums of Prato.
