Colle Val d'Elsa and surroundings...

In the heart of Tuscany, at the crossroads of ancient paths, Colle di Val d'Elsa condenses everything you could possibly ask for from a holiday, landscape, art, good food, encounters.

Colle Val D'Elsa

The background is that of the Valley of the Elsa river, which starts in the Colline Metallifere and flows into the Arno in the Empoli area. A woody countryside, brightened by sweeps of olive groves. From time immemorial a through road, or rather a crossroads: from North to South and from the sea to the Apennines. A phenomenon that has been documented from Etruscan times, when most of the important inhabited areas were founded, but of particular importance in the Middle Ages, with the flow of pilgrims direct to Rome along the Via Francigena and the markets that took place along the Volterrana road.

This is Colle di Val d’Elsa’s historical reality, combining the productive reality of glass (15% of the world production and 95% of the national production of crystal objects is concentrated here), with a touristic vocation supported by an evocative slogan, “Sweet countryside and ancient walls”. The message is clear: on one side, the proposals of a territory where the touristic component is exceptional and the typical productions represent the best of Tuscany; on the other, a series of enchanting towns - Monteriggioni, San Gimignano, Siena, Florence, Volterra, to name but the best-known – in a backdrop that ranges from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance and reserves emotions – encounters, views and places far from the tourist guides – at every turn.
