The territory of Empoli-Valdelsa, which lies in a central position among three world-famous cities of art, Florence, Pisa and Siena, offers tourists both cultural and natural treasures still to be discovered by mass tourism. Leaving the middle area of the Arno, our journey takes us towards the Montalbano hills to the North or Valdelsa to the South.
On our way we pass numerous areas of historical and artistic interest, where museums, villages and hamlets immersed in typical Tuscan hillside scenery, and areas of naturalistic importance. Far from the flux of mass tourism, the territory is still an important cross-roads for communication in the Florentine area and an ideal area for those tourist who may be attracted by universally famous names such as Boccaccio, Leonardo da Vinci and Pontormo, and who want to spend their holidays in quiet but welcoming areas, with well-preserved landscape, among history, nature and tradition, which especially means the production of Chianti wine and olive oil, craftsmanship of ceramics, glass and leather goods.
