The addition of this lift from the newer part of Colle di Val d'Elsa to the historic old town should mean that everyone can visit. Not the most atmospheric way of arriving in the old town but very convenient!

An elevator built to take you up to the old centre of town...pretty unique! It is definitely something to try when you're visiting. The elevator takes you from the newer centre of town, down the hill, up to the ancient centre.

A great way to access the old town and from an engineering point of view it's fantastic. And a lift that pops out of the ground to expose the old town and an incredible view.
