Our stay at this nicely outfitted apartment in magical Certaldo Alto was very peaceful. The apartment is located at the top of the main via through town- stick your head out any window and you'll feel as though you've traveled back through time. In one direction is the Via Boccaccio, along which are a few small shops and restaurants housed in magnificent brick buildings. In the other direction visible from the apartment, you are at the steps of the beautiful Palazzo Pretorio.
The small terrace to the side of the apartment offers a lovely view of Tuscan countryside.
While there, we spent some time in Certaldo, the larger, modern town below Certaldo Alto, where we shopped and caught the train to Sienna and Florence quite easily. We enjoyed taking the funicular up to Certaldo Alto at the end of a long day of sightseeing.

We had a wonderful trip in late May 2013. The apartment is not fancy, but it was exactly what we needed. Central location, good train access, and wonderful dining experiences in Certaldo Alto. We traveled without a hitch via train to Siena and Firenze multiple times and drove to Pisa one day. Miriam helped us with car rental and return, as well as transfers to and from the Firenze airport. She could not have been more pleasant or helpful. Even though her English leaves something to be desired, must say that her English is way better than my Italian.
