Poggibonsi is a nice town located in Val d’Elsa, close to the Chianti area (part of Poggibonsi territory is included in Chianti Classico zone) and characterized by a wonderful hilly landscape covered with olive trees and vineyards.
The tourist vocation of the town and its surroundings has recently increased thanks to its strategic position and the production of some of the most representative products of Tuscany, extra virgin olive oil and wine (besides honey and saffron), that always attract all traditional food passionates coming from anywhere. Poggibonsi is set, in fact, close to many popular art destinations of the region, such as San Gimignano, Siena, Florence, Pisa and Volterra, easily reachable both by car and public transports, and offer at the same time a peaceful location far from city noise.
You’ll find then plenty of rural accommodation where you’ll have the chance to taste local wines and oil. Surroundings also offer many parish churches, abbeys, medieval castles and renaissance villas that actually deserve to be visited.
