Certaldo - a picturesque village in Italy


If you enjoy discovering new places and trying new food, then this post is for you. I will talk about the most beautiful villages in Italy and their gastronomic delicacies.

Certaldo - I assure you, this is one of the most picturesque villages in Tuscany. Giovanni Boccaccio was born here (be sure to visit his house-museum), and the village itself received the flag of the Tourist Club of Italy.

For lovers of fun, this area will become the most beloved, because it is rich in events and festivals that take place here every year. Many tourists come to the Mercantia festival. In July, Certaldo hosts a street theater festival. The streets of the city are transformed into theatrical stages. Who and what you will not see here: puppet shows, shadow theater, magicians, jugglers and dances with fire, musical performances and processions of drummers. You will be impressed by tightrope walkers, acrobats, jugglers and many others.

And what is delicious in Certaldo? Undoubtedly, the area's delicacy is the onion soup "zuppa di cipolla vernina di Certaldo" - a hot dish made from rustic dark red onions, and the famous "Francesina" - a sandwich boiled in a saucepan with onion and grated tomato. A delicacy that you must try!
