Know More about this tour

The oldest part of the town is the "colle alta", the higher part, with a well-preserved medieval center. The town developed along the river from the 11th century onwards, building an artificial canal to power various industrial activities, such as wheat mills and paper factories. From the 14th century, it was a possession of Florence and the Grand Duchy of Tuscany until the unification of Italy in 1860. In the 20th century, it became an important industrial center. Today it is internationally renowned for the production of crystal glassware and art (15% of world production), largely produced in the industrial lower town.
Colle Val dElsa is even the birthplace of important people as the sculptor and architect Arnolfo di Cambio, the poet Isabella Cervoni, the poet and peinter Mino Maccari etc. Here Carlo Collodi got the inspiration for is famous novel: Pinocchio, which entertain so many children of the world.
In Colle there is not only history, the Middle Ages atmosphere, the Renaissance building, churches and curiosities. It is located very close to the river Elsa, where we will walk to relax and enyoj a day off from tourist, shops and museums.
