We took the funicular from Certaldo Basso (about 300-400m from Certaldo railway station) up to Certaldo Alto where the medieval old town is. There is only a single car which can fit about 15-20 people (sitting and standing), and the regular run goes about every...More

We were keen to visit Certaldo Alto - the upper, and ancient, part of town. You can, of course, walk up using the narrow streets but that is one heck of a climb, and most folks use the funicular railway which costs just 1.50 Euros...More

We stumbled across this having parked at the bottom of the hill (following parking for the centro). Return was 1 euro 50 per person. Regular journey and quick trip up the hill. Much needed in the height of the midday sun.

The funicular provides a quick ride up to the top of town. The views are very nice and the ticket price is cheap. The funicular runs pretty regularly too.

Nice short ride (4 min) up to Certaldo Alto, a beautiful small old hilltop town worth visiting even if it is touristy. Wonderful panoramic views all the way to San Giminiano. Cost : 1,50 round trip.

Nice view on the way up too. Very handy and a good price for return ticket. We parked in Certaldo to visit the Mercantia event in Certaldo Alto and they were very helpful with tickets. You can also drive to a car park near the...More

Easier to park in Lower Certaldo - right in the square by the entrance to the funicular, than drive up to the top car park (if you go up the wrong way you will find yourself in the 'restricted ZTS area and liable for a...More

The climb from downtown Certaldo to the medieval castle on the hill can be very hard for those with bad knees. It can even be challenging for those in good health and reasonably fit. The funicolare makes the journey a breeze. For under 1.5 euro...More

Best way to visit the Certaldo castle on the hill. But watch out, its entrance is hidden in the facade of shops. And the price....: cheap.
