Val d'Elsa

The Val d'Elsa is the valley of the river Elsa, that runs in a South-North direction between low and roundhills, in an area with a strong human presence. The strategic importance of the Val d'Elsa is all in its routes. Indeed, since ancient age this land represented an obliged passage, for commerce and relations, that determined the birth of the city, developed along the Via Francigena. The Via Francigena is the pilgrimage route that from Canterbury arrives to Rome and was one of the most important European communication routes in medieval age. It goes through several localities of Tuscany, among which we remember Massa, Lucca, San Gimignano, Siena. Although it was a land of passage, the Val d'elsa has maintained itself outside from the usual tourist routes, therefore now it can offer routes between history, the culture and nature.
