Volterra

A country to be experienced

“Volterra, a beautiful city: Etruria, Rome, Middle Ages, Renaissance; wall, gates, towers, palaces carved in the yellow hard sandstone; museum, gallery, cathedral; a marble, pottery, wooden statues, Senese and Florentine painted panels treasure. Beautiful city that the mystery of its two, three, four, five civilisations superimposed make unforgettable” Ugo Ottieri, Corriere della Sera, 1922

It is impossible to describe Volterra, Volterra has to be visited. The town seems timeless. It is 550 above the sea level and is enclosed between the Cecina river valley to the South-west and the Era river valley to the North-east. Volterra offers to its visitors the pleasure of discovering its history from the Bronze Age up to present time (through Etrurian and Roman period, Middle Age and Renaissance, Italian Resistance movement,…). Just walking around you will notice its rich history under your eyes and the visit of its museums will turn you back in the past. The shop and store will remind you the crafts and flavours of the ancient town.
