Full description
Leave Florence in the morning and travel with your guide to Colle Val D'Elsa. This charming hill town is surprisingly productive: 95% of Italy's crystal is produced here. In Colle Val D'Elsa you will see crystal blown by hand and made into delicate wine glasses, vases, and even animal sculptures.

Next, you will ride into the incredible landscape of Volterra, where treeless green hills compose a landscape that is perfect for photos. The tour will stop at an organic cheese farm to taste the area's best sheep's milk cheese. The farm's Pecorino cheese is guaranteed to impress you.

Once your appetite is sated, you will climb into the hill town of Volterra. This ancient Etruscan stronghold is now famous for its alabaster.
