visited this alabaster shop based upon a recommendation from Rick Steves. They have alot of interesting things and in fact a lamp was purchased. The asking price was paid including the cost of shipping and insurance. However, it was not well packed and was broken in pieces when it arrived. The owner refused to make an insurance claim and only... More

We had a day trip from the port of Livorno with Rome in Limo and our first stop was Volterra. It was a delightful village with interesting little shops and a great view from the square at the top. We had a good coffee in a cafe and did some unusual shopping before proceeding to San Gimignano where we marvelled... More

This is a very pretty medieval town. However, it is relatively small. We combined our trip here with a stop at San Gimagniano, which worked out very well, since two hours in each town, depending on what you want to do was plenty of time to wander the streets, stop for a quick lunch and enjoy the views

There is more to see here than a lot of small towns in Italy and is worth a day or so. However, you should combine this was a trip to other towns in the area over a few days. I know Rick Steves likes it because of it's charm (believe me, it has it). But you must realize that there... More

Charming medival small town with old churches, piazzas and markets. Very friendly Volterrans greet you at every corner. Even though city is mentioned in Twighlight the shooting was actually in a different location. Neverless for the one, who are not afraid of the dark :) Volterra is must visit!

We spent an idyllic couple of hours enjoying the atmosphere of the beautiful medieval hilltop town. It has stunning views of the surrounding countryside. Traffic is mostly barred from the centre, so walking around is easy. The streets are filled with local craft shops, plus several enotecas (wine shops) so getting a few bottles of decent wine is very simple!.... More

Spent an idyllic afternoon in the pretty and very historic town of Volterra. Definitely worth a visit, plenty to see and do. if you like marble and alabaster, this is the place to hunt down a beautiful reminder of your Italian getaway.

Beautiful medieval town (apparently where parts of the Twilight saga were filmed). Worth the 90min slog of a cycle (/walk!) up there!

Great hill town to spend the afternoon or morning exploring. Warning the roads getting to Volterra are very windy and a long climb to the top. Once you are there it is worth it. There are a number of sites and historical places you can see without paying admission. The souvenir shops are cute too. Make sure to check out... More

This summer we visited Volterra the day before the Palio was held, so many many of the tourists in Tuscay were at Siena. What a change! This will be always a very beautiful town, but visiting it without the crowds was a treat.
