i wanto to open this forum discussing about Montaione and its perfect position for visiting the Val d' Era, that in my opinion is one of the best place in Tuscany, may the most autentic Tuscany since it is not so known like the other places in Tuscany. Montaione is a pictouresque town in the hills of Val d' Era and it offer to reach San Gimignano or Volterra in few minutes. Montaione really offer the choice to enjoy the Tuscany and so relaxing Tuscany Countryside!!!!!!!These are the main and most popular places but you can discover also Certaldo, San Vivaldo, Cellole, and other small villages where time look stop by the time....expecially during summer time when u can discover feast in villages like the one in Certaldo: mercanzia if i am not wrong.
For example i had the choice to walk and buy handmades bracialets and other nice things in the night market in Montaione and then to eat an ice cream in the open terrace of Montaione where u can have an out of sight view Era valley. Does anyone know something more about Montaione?
