During the journey we recommend visiting Colle di Val D’elsa’s village, appear in the medieval age. The high part of Colle Val D’elsa is the oldest one, it’s well restructured, It’s close to traffic and it has lots of restaurant and markets with traditional products. It can be reached by the high part, following via Volterrana, as by the low part with a useful lift which was created using the subsoil’s tunnels of the village. The entrance is very close to the principal square, called Arnolfo square.

In ancient times the village was equipped with lots of subsoil’s canals, that were used to make work the mills, the paper factory and the production of glass and crystal. The last one, the crystal of Colle val D’elsa , it’is famous in all the world, so we recommend visiting the crystal’s museum.
Moreover, biking and walking passionated could go through the Elsa pathway and cross the park near the river Elsa which is distant about 1 km from the agritourism, or take the 6km cycling lane to go to Poggibonsi. You could also go through the Via Francigena toward Monteriggioni or San Gimignano, furthermore following dirt roads in a few minutes you could reach the Montagnola Senese and the Monteriggioni’s stronghold.
