Discovering "Tuscany's Jerusalem"
Montaione took its name after the Allone di Lucca, and was documented in the Middle Ages as Mons Allonis. In the 1200s Montaione became known for glass working, which spread throughout the Valdelsa. In 1257 the town was struck by the wars between San Gimignano, Volterra and San Miniato, but mostly gravitated around Florence.
