The city of Prato is situated in the region of Tuscany in Central Italy. Prato’s central location within Tuscany makes it an ideal base for exploring all the important sights in the region: Pisa, Siena, Florence, Lucca, and the seaside are all a short train ride away.
Prato has become well-known globally as Italy’s main center of textile production. But while it has the advantages of a major city (of about 200,000 people) Prato still retains the feel of a close-knit town.
