Organised tours of the palace grounds are conducted during the Artisans and the Palace, allowing people to explore the history of the building.

There is also an open-air restaurant serving traditional Tuscan food and other refreshments for those in attendance.

The event runs from May 14 to May 16th, opening at 10:00 and closing at 20:30 local time.
