Volterra

Volterra holidays

With its Etruscan origins, reputation for making alabaster objects and trinkets, and fascinating old city walls, Volterra has got a lot to show off. Unfold your map and you’ll see a maze of historic buildings and exceptional pasta restaurants. You won’t be far from bigger Tuscan towns and cities, too.

Pages from a picture book

Make your way to Piazza dei Priori. It’s ultra-typical in its Italian looks, so it won’t be hard to spot. The imposing palace is a grand building, with coats of arms on one wall. As for the Roman theatre – it stands in most of its glory, with the seating area still visible.

A cultural collection

With a library of 50,000 works and hundreds of cinerary urns, the Guarnacci Museum is a place of great culture. But if you’re after even more to explore, why not take a day out to Siena or Lucca? These cities make superb escapes, with their fusion of old sites and modern dining spots.
