Rivalto is an ancient historic Etruscan hamlet close to Chianni. This charming village was developed in the Middle Ages, and witness of that period is the urban architecture, with houses and buildings huddled close together in narrow stone streets. Surrounded by chestnuts and olive trees, Rivalto has a splendid view over the valley below. The hidden location has maintained the place almost intact over time. The seaside cities of Castiglioncello and Cecina on the Tyrrhenian coast, the golf courses of Pisa and Castelfalfi and the historic towns of Volterra and San Gimignano are within an easy drive. Rivalto is just 5 km from Casciana Terme, an ancient spa resort, which is still open to the public and is a spa resort of national importance.
