The first floor is reached by two L-shaped pietra serena staircases, starting from the back of the main entrance hall and reaching a large ledge with capanna vaulting, functioning as a pre-entrance to the first floor.
The first floor is accessed through a main antique wood door, framed by bricks.

On the back side of the first floor are two big terraces, about 70 square meters/334 square feet each, and underneath the terraces are two mezzanine loft apartments, about 80 square meters/ 861 square feet each, formerly warehouses and now perfectly restyled. The mezzanine apartments are connected with the other floors by the two main L-shaped staircases.
Underneath the mezzanines are the vaults, vast wine cellars with cement vats, one of which dates from 1788.

The Villa has a rectangular layout, about 40 meters/430 feet long, and 20 meters/215 feet deep.

The Villa Medicea Ammiraglio Giulio de’ Medici in the North Central part of Italy, easily reachable by every mean of transportation: highway, train, 2 international airports. With a 250-km coastline, a gorgeous archipelago easily accessible by ferry boat, breathtaking mountains such as the Apuan Alps and the Appennin range, and several lakes, Tuscany is probably the most all-encompassing region of Italy, with a unique blend of history and nature. Here is where the modern Italian language was almost single-handedly invented by Dante Alighieri, and here is also the birthplace of the Renaissance which, through art and science, would propel mankind into our current age. At the Carrara marble caves Michelangelo would personally choose the slabs to be used for his masterpieces, while a few centuries later, Puccini had a beautiful estate overlooking lake Massaciuccoli, where he composed most of his operas. Tuscany's landscape is world-famous, scattered with olive groves, vineyards, and sunflower fields, and dotted with lovely winding roads of cypress trees. Almost every single product of the Tuscan soil is world-renown: olive oil, fine wine, spring water, mushrooms, and the list goes on and on.
