San Vivaldo (3 km from Borgoiano) is famous for the Sacred Mount, or Jerusalem of Tuscany. It is situated in the middle of a wide wood named Selva di Camporena , it is a group of chapels and small temples decorated with terracotta statues and high relief from the workshop of Della Robbia representing with skilful realism, scenes from the Passion of Christ.

San Gimignano is known as the "town of the beautiful towers". Its unmistakable skyline has silhouetted for centuries in the surrounding country which still produces its old and famous wine: the "Vernaccia". Here it seems that time has stopped at the medieval age as its beautiful squares and streets maintain untouched the charm of the past. Among the many monuments the Cappella di Santa Fina, the Museo Civico, the Museo di Arte Sacra, the Chiesa di Sant'Agostino with the Cappella di San Bartolo are not to be missed.

Volterra lies on a precipitous hill with open views in every direction across a splendid yellow and grey landscape of clay gullies and hills. The town, of Etruscan origin, maintained its importance with the Romans as testified by the Arco Etrusco, the precious collection of Etruscan cinerary urns of Museo Guarnacci and the Teatro Romano. Volterra has also beautiful medieval buildings and the XIII century medieval Duomo. The town has for long been famous for the traditional skill of its craftsmen in working alabaster, hundreds of workshops still produce works of art with the stone.

The old town of Certaldo stands on a hill overlooking the Valle dell'Elsa. The "borgo" maintains its medieval character. All the main brick buildings and houses with towers of XIII AND XIV century face onto the main street, among them the Boccaccio's house. At the end of the street is the Palazzo Pretorio with its façade decorated with pictoresque coats of arms in stone and glazed terracotta.
The old walled town centre of Castelfiorentino lies on a rocky spur. Of great artistic interest are the frescoes by Benozzo Gozzoli which decorated two tabernacles on the Via Francigena, now housed in the Biblioteca Comunale. Worth visiting is also the XII century romanesque church of Sant'Ippolito. At the entrance of the Lower town is the church of Santa Verdiana, a wonderful example of baroque Tuscan art with the splendid mannerist frescoes of the interior.
