We start at Colle di Val D'Elsa, famous for they crystal glass creations. After visiting the little town we will dive into the the Elsa River Park where you will have the sensation to be on another planet or at least in Amazonia.
A rich vegetation accompanies us for about 4 km . We will cross the river, and the turquoise water, at various points on stone fords.
Following the ancient Via Francigena we will stop at some Roman bath, admire the "Island" Abbey Isola and the tiny medieval village of Strove.
We will arrive at Monteriggioni, visit this unique town, and return to the cars by bus or by taxi.
