The lower part, with the central Piazza Arnolfo is where you find shops, banks and post office. Every week there is a market in Piazza Arnolfo.
The glass industry has been important for the town since the 16th century. In the nineteenth century it was called the Bohemia of Italy, and today Colle Val d’Elsa is known worldwide as the City of Crystal.
Colle Val d’Elsa has also obtained the name of Bio City (brand promoted by AIAB – Italian Association for Organic Agriculture) for the support and development of major projects for the environment, organic farming and sustainability.
