Colle Val d'Elsa

Colle Val d'Elsa holidays

Welcome to a hilltop town so quaint and quiet in the Elsa Valley that you won’t want to leave. With its vast viewpoints and interesting past, it’s a winner for a relaxing retreat. Walk among the old noble houses and through the ancient Puorta Nova entrance.

Pilgrimages and popular places

Take a drive to the nearby hotspots – San Gimignano, Siena and Florence are all must-visit towns and cities, each brimming with culture and sophistication. You’ll also be in prime place to try chianti wine! The Via Francigena is an old pilgrim route than runs from Canterbury to Rome, so don’t miss that either. 

Cutting-edge products

Responsible for over 90% of Italy’s glass production, Colle Val d’Elsa is known for its crystal. There’s a museum that’ll educate you about the process and the history of the fine works, too. Come and see the wares sparkle. Elsewhere, food markets every first Sunday off the month showcase the best local bites.
