Castellina offers a long history reaching back to the Bronze. The panoramic roads that wind throughout the valleys of Pesa, Arbia and Elsa hold many surprises,
You can walk through "via delle volte", a covered street that was part of the defences of the town, and also look at all the artisans in the main road.
This is the second nearest village from our Farmhouse. One of the most famous places in Castellina is "Gelateria di Castellina", if you love ice cream, you have to go there! Super-quality, people come from far away to taste it!

Where to eat:
Sotto le volte: Really good restaurant, inside the ancient walls of Castellina. They have fantastic Ravioli. The space is really fresh and cozy.
"Cacio e Pepe" and "Il rifugio dei folletti": Are nice shops where you can buy local food like cheese and meat but also fresh vegetables.
