Colle di Val D’Elsa is a small ancient town where La Citta’ del Cristallo (The City of Crystal) is located. Steve had called ahead to arrange a tour of the glass factory, and when we arrived, the glass makers really put on a show for us. We learned all of the steps for hand making leaded crystal wine glasses. The choreographed split-second teamwork of the craftsmen was impressive, and we were allowed to stand close for a good look.
