In the Seano locality visitors will find one of the most important outdoor sculpture gardens in Europe dedicated to a single artist: the Quinto Martini Museum Park.
In the local trattorie you can discover the ancient flavours of traditional cooking, and sample the excellent wine produced by many farms and wineries, with a chance to learn all about the history and production of the prestigious "Carmignano" at the Vine and Wine Museum.
