The Hostel is situated in the Valle dell'Elsa on Via Francigena, a place of transit for pilgrims and travellers on their way to Rome from Northern Europe during Medieval Times. From the XIIth Century onwards it had great political, econimic and artistic importance, due to its location on the borders of Florence, Pisa and Siena: cities that have dominated art in all its expressive forms.
Location & Transportation
Today Castelfiorentino offers the visitor the occasion of finding the vestiges of a frontier land, where the works of the Museum of Santa Verdiana are only but a few elements of a rich artistic heritage.
If you are coming from Florence or Pisa with car you have to drive along the speedway "Firenze-Pisa-Livorno" and exit in "Empoli Ovest"; then follow the sign to Castelfiorentino. The hostel is situated in the sporting-area, close to the soccer ground.
Coming with train you will find Castelfiorentino on the line Florence-Siena ( train station in Castelfiorentino is about 600 meters far from the hostel ).

Amenities & Attractions
The structure of the hostel is modern though the central building, which has been restructured, dates back to the nineteen twenties. In the foyer are the reception area and a conversation corner. Close to the foyer are a wide dining room and other rooms for the comfort of our guests, all of which look on to a beautiful internal courtyard paved in terracotta.
The position of the town of Castelfiroentino, in the heart of Tuscany, makes the hostel the ideal base from which to visit the major art cities as well as less known town of historical and cultural interest.
