Certaldo it is known worldwide especially as the hometown of Giovanni Boccaccio, who lived and died on 1375 in his house at Via Boccaccio. From Certaldo it is possible to reach in short time the most important towns and villages. The ospitality of the people of Certaldo, the conviviality of their

cuisine, the beauty of their craft are ingredients for a pleasant sojourn in

Tuscany, during which cultural occasions and spectacles are never missing.

Lanes and squares,dominated since XII Century by the Pretorian Palace, show

signs of Romanesque architecture and of thirteenth century paintings which

are framed and surrounded by the arts of our times.

Distance : San Gimignano km. 10, Siena km. 30, Firenze Km. 40, Volterra km. 30, Pisa e Lucca km. 60. Especially in the summer period, there are many cultural, musical and artistic events. In July the spectacular festival called 'MERCANTIA' with its street artists and artisans on every corner of Medieval town.
