Things to do: shopping, museums, wineries
Montelupo Fiorentino is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Florence in the Italian region Tuscany, located about 20km southwest of Florence. As of 31 December 2013, it had a population of 13,970 and an area of 24.6kmĀ².GeographyThe area is predominantly hilly and is crossed by the river Pesa that, particularly in the municipal area, flows into the Arno river.HistoryHuman presence in the area of Montelupo dates back to the Palaeolithic era. Evidence of this are the many prehistoric sites which have been identified in the last twenty years, in the municipal area.Testimony of human presence during the classical era recently emerged from Etruscan civilization tombs in the old town and from the discovery of a Roman villa dating from the Republican age. The place was known as Mansio ad Arnum, as evidenced in the Tabula Peutingeriana, and it is probable that in the area there was a bridge that, during ancient Rome, permitted the crossing of the river Arno.During the 5th and 6th centuries AD, the area faced threats of barbarian invasions, and the population left the plains and relocated to the surrounding hills. This phenomenon reached its peak during the 10th century, during the time of power struggles between the great families Guidi, Cadolingi and Alberti. These families realized in the area, a dense network of military facilities, which included the towns of Capraia and Montelupo Fiorentino.
