  • overlooking the new part of town. A place out of time a beauty out of the ordinary. Splendid arrive there on the street with views over the towers and walls that overlook the beautiful countryside. I think we can also be reached by a funicular. Full of delightful local where besides the food is very good. Birthplace of Giovanni Boccaccio with his birthplace can be visited for a fee. A fine Church and the splendid palazzo pretorio. A must see when I move around. On not many cars and virtually all pay. In July (I haven't been able to see it) there is an important festival dedicated to street performers

  • We were in Certaldo during boccaccesca Festival. Certaldo is much less touristic than neighbouring towns and therefore a fine nonspoiled town. Worth to visit 
  • Beautiful village for sure can not miss among the places to visit in Tuscany. Charm and history, it is worth visiting even for a day "grey and drizzly". Excellent cuisine.
