Description

The area of Colle di Val D’Elsa is the Italian center for the production of Crystal, excellence that has its origins more than 800 years ago. For this reason, our visit will start from an artistic factory, where we will be able to admire the various stages of crystal glassware working, blowing, modeling and finishing, which lead the skilled glass masters to create beautiful works of art, which we can see in the large show room, where it is also possible to make purchases. After a lunch break, we will visit the historical center of Colle di Val D’Elsa, a village of Etruscan origin, unjustly left off the most traditional tourist routes, despite its proximity to San Gimignano. We will walk along the main street of the old town, perched high on a hill, we will stop for some photos at the most beautiful panoramic viewpoints, we will see some medieval tower-houses, including the one where the famous architect of the Florence Cathedral, Arnolfo di Cambio, was born, but also beautiful examples of Renaissance architecture, such as Porta Nuova, the Cathedral and Palazzo Campana.
