My opinion may be a little swayed, since I got married here. But honestly, I fell in love with Certaldo Alto from my very first step off the funicolare. It's like stepping back in time a few hundred years. It's a gorgeous town with beautiful views, friendly people and a handful of fantastic restaurants. For now, the crowds are minimal.... More

There is free parking at the bottom of the hill in the town You can then take the funicular up. This is much easier than driving around in the frustrating one way streets to... More

From this town we caught the local trains into Siena and then to Florence. It was very easy to travel on the local transport.
