  • In a few days ' break in San Gimignano and Volterra (beautiful), we thought we'd see this village. What can we say? Surely the village bale worth a visit but surely spring summer, we unfortunately we saw in the winter on a day so cold that almost everything was closed. Shame as imagine in spring with balconies with flowers and some with tables outside surely must be gorgeous. In my opinion it's worth for a romantic summer evening, off the beaten tracks.

  • To get to the village there is a nice climb to do but worth it if you're not in a hurry! It is a small medieval village that will leave you absolutely charming. There are a few sights that are worth being seen. La casa di Boccaccio have seen only from outside. A very pretty village.

  • The top of certaldo is certainly fascinating. We came on a very cold night and there was no one in the country. We took the funicular and strolled through the village: lovely. Going back in time keeping, in order to learn more about the history of the country, see the House of Boccaccio, lunch at one of the restaurants that we have "spotted". To be reviewed.
