This is a great little town that we were recommended by friends. The people were friendly and Certaldo Alto is a beautiful place to visit and not over run with tourists. A great place to relax.

Thanks to the reception lady at Villa Saulina in Lastra aSgna, got the tip to visit this hidden gem on our way to. San Gimigninano. We wandered through the local town till e found the funicular station and we were surprised to pay only. 1.5 Euro for all trip. At the top of the hill we wandered trough the narrow streets ad enjoyed the scenery and the old houses. One miss : the locals really worship ter siestas - both museum and ld castle are closed between 13:00 to 15:00.....have they not heard of tourists !?

This is a wonderful, non-touristy authentic medieval Tuscan village. Be sure to take in the small archery/armory museum.

Recently got married in Certaldo Alto, and were made very welcome. Certaldo Alto is a Medieval centre, which is untouristy and unspoilt, and our wedding day was wonderful.

Unspoilt and very picturesque, the old town on top of the hill is a brilliant place for a wander. You can get a return trip on the funicular railway for €1.50 if you don't fancy the walk up. A few gorgeous coffee shops and restaurants make for perfect resting spots to take in the views and soak up the medieval atmosphere away from the tourist throngs in the more popular and well known locations of the area.
