It is a beautiful palace that is still used today as the town's city hall. In fact, the city hall of Florence is modeled on it. Be careful climbing the tower. The bell automatically rings on the hour and half hour, and you'll be deafened if you are under it.

Giuliano Giuman' Last Time Exhibition in the Palazzo Dei Priori is truly beautiful It is mostly glass pieces that are evocative in a gentle way. Some are pieces that stand alone, others are melded together with tools or other pieces of metal. Usually I don't like Modern Art but I was transfixed throughout the two floors of this exhibition.

My sister and husband were married here and it was fantastic, the service was lovely and the decor speaks for itself in pictures. When we exited the building there was a crowd waiting to cheer for the newlyweds in the courtyard. Beautiful!

This was a great medieval hall and the staff were wonderful. Antonio climbed with us to the top of the tower and the poor man has to do this with each group of visitors always with a smile and clear explanations of what we are seeing. Off season and off the beaten track, this is a well maintained site

Volterra is well worth at least a day trip and the main piazza is quite impressive.. The town is walkable and has been an important center since Etruscan times.

It is just gorgeous, it amazes me to walk on stone that people walked on before the birth of Christ. Just awesome.
