Top-Rated Tourist Attractions in Prato
Prato lies in a basin in the Bisenzio Valley, on both banks of the river, roughly half-way between Florence and Pistoia.
The site of present-day Prato was probably occupied by an Etruscan settlement. Prato itself first appears in the records in the 10th century; it received its municipal charter in 1653. In medieval times Prato was famous for its wool, and it is still a major textile center. The older part of the town has preserved a number of handsome and historic old buildings.
