Of course the Palazzio is the most noticeable and emblematic building in Certaldo’s old city but the whole place is worth a stroll. Charming streets, relaxing atmosphere angled stones. Dn’t Mix with the modern city that is several km away and offers nothing of interest.

A quite little old town on the hill. Not crowded and in one hour driving distance from Florence. The old town is on a hill. There is nothing to see in new town. You should leave your car and take the funicular to reach the...More

The views from the last kilometer of the drive up to Certaldo Alto (the old city) are stunning, and the town itself does not disappoint. There is also a funicular from the new town below. It seems as though almost nothing has changed in the...More

We were staying 15 minutes outside Certaldo and didn't realize that it had a high up, hill top part to town. We took the funicular up on our last night and wandered around. It is totally charming. Having been in San Gimignano and Siena (both...More

If you are in the area, I highly recommend passing by this town. It is an old medieval town with great views, nice restaurant and good gelato.

I agree with a previous reviewer. We went here first and I’m glad we did because I think if we’d reversed the order we would have been disappointed. As it was we had a pleasant afternoon wandering around the town and visiting the Palazzo, church...More

We had a lovely day trip to Certaldo and it was the perfect day away from the crowds of Florence and Pisa. This is an old town built up on the hill with a new town down below. The train goes direct to Florence and...More

A group of us went to the top of the hill via the cart on Easter Sunday. It was our second trip to Certaldo. The top of the town is really pretty, full of artisan shops and cafes. There are also medieval frescos on the...More

Probably late answering this- I apologize. The best way to get to Certaldo alto is to take the funicular. You can walk back down as it isn't bad at all. Hope you have a great time!
