  • This village, which is the historical part of the town of Certaldo, is located on the heights of the city. It consists of a main street lined with red brick houses. The architectural ensemble is magnificent and changes according to the hours and the sunshine. Going up the street you have a remarkable view of the Palazzo Pretorio, a fortified building by its faade faience inlays.

  • Certaldo is the modern part of the village, the best part is the top and middle ages. Accessible by cable car or on foot. You will find many nice cafes where you can enjoy a glass of wine. From here you can visit the House of Boccaccio.

  • I was with my family in this small village. Enjoyable visit. Very nice place. To get to the top there is a small cable car. The parking is pretty cheap. I recommend it for families with kids.
