We were actually lucky enough to see a wedding right in the middle of the square when we were sitting at one of the many cafés. Beautiful gorgeous place.

We traveled up to the town of Volterra last week by car. There is car park just outside of the town making it easy to park and walk into the town. The journey there was through beautiful typically Tuscan countryside and up a steep road. The town is very old surrounded by an old 'city' wall. The town has lots... More

We visited Volterra this summer with 3 kids aged 2,5,8. We arrived a day before the Volterra 1398ad festival, and spent a whole day in the city. The city is beautiful. The center is almost flat, which makes it easy to walk with kids. The festival is highly recommended for the whole family. The kids were very happy, and so... More

Volterra was probably the most stunning of all the madly gorgeous and beautiful hill towns we visited in Tuscany. I just wish we had spent more time there - the Museum ticket entitled us to visit all five locations in 72 hours, but we only managed two (Etruscan and Alabaster) in the afternoon we were there. I have run out... More

Volterra is a wonderful city in Tuscany, historically rich and quite high in elevation. The city has much to offer, including hotels and restaurants. It is worth the trip up the mountain to experience it because it is unlike most of the walled cities in Italy. Volterra is always on my itinerary whenever I visit Tuscany. During this most recent...

Amongst the famous Tuscan hill towns ,Volterra is likely the least visited which is probably one of it's charms. Being an old Etruscan city it certainly offers wonderful historic sights to see but also a stroll in the town is much more pleasant and relaxing than other busier counterparts. I was surprised to find how many good dining options are... More

Wonderful views, hillside town, most attractive streets , typically Italian piazzas, parks and rooftop views. Stunning place to visit. Food was typically fabulous too. We did a day trip from Lari where we were staying. We are glad to have made the effort.

We were on our way to Florence with a group and stopped here for just a few hours. We knew it was an Etruscan hilltop city but had no idea that there was also a very large Roman excavation there. Also, it did not have the crowds that Florence is currently overrun with. There are many churches beyond the amazing... More
