Certaldo is a small and nice town close to San Gimignano. The medieval town center is an easy walking area with nice restaurants with excellent views. Excellent stay for half a day. Start the day in Certaldo, then go directly to San Gimignano and you will have a great day in Tuscany!

This is a modern city. However, Certaldo Alto is not to be missed. A steep walk up hilla, but a quaint and acient little town at the top. Not ultra touristy so Shhh. Kepp the secret.

Certaldo is worth a visit if you can spare a couple of hours. It’s easily reached as one drives to other more famous places in Tuscany, since it is near San Gimignano in the triangle formed by Firenze, Siena, and Pisa. There is easily accessible free parking in the lower part of town next to the funicular that will take... More

Fantastic day trip from about anywhere in Tuscany and worth a detour. Take the tram or drive up to Certaldo Alto and meander around the quaint and ancient hilltop town.

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

A beautiful hilltop city that is very scenic. Some excellent views. After the rainy days we were able to see all the way to San Gimignano. 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
