Again one of the Volterra 6 and parts one of the real highlights. It was very quiet when we visited. Very good exhibition of pop icons including the Beatles and Stones. Fascinating film exhibition with a film show to watch. Definitely worth a visit especially if you have bought a Volterra card and are not tired by the overload of... More

Of all of the 6 museums that were included as part of the Volterra Card, this was not the top of the list for a visit. To be honest, after a week in Italy, i had been totally religious-arted out and was beginning to empathise with what the Goths thought when they sacked Rome. However, this place was a complete...

Absolutely beautiful, definitely worth a trip. Walking through the gallery is absolutely breathtaking and we ate a a cute cafe very close by. While we were there the bells rang and the view of the valley was amazing.

The artistic event (which occurred in 2014 and continues in 2015 in the ''Pinacoteca'' in Volterra and throughout the city) , around Rosso Fiorentino's mannerist masterpiece: ''Deposition'', is further emphasized by the location, where the original canvas is hosted. It is one of the most successful and ingenious art exhibitions I've ever seen! The building itself it is so well... More

Great little hill town my daughter wanted to see. Great way to spend an afternoon! Worth the drive to leave the busy cities of Florence and Rome behind.

We had a pass which allowed us to see all the Volterra sights within 72 hours so we gave this a whirl. There was a special exhibit which was moderately interesting.

Although I am not heavily into religious art, I could not fail to be impressed by many of the exhibits on display.

The city of Volterra is a treasure of art and history, but not only for its Etruscan masterpieces. If possible, during the city tour do not forget to spend an hour at this wonderful shrine of italian painting. It is a relatively small collection, but top quality. Among the many Italian museums of this kind, the Art Gallery of Volterra... More

If you like medieval and Renaissance painting do not miss this gallery. It is also in a wonderful building. You can also look behind the paintings because they are on easels and not attached to the ancient walls.

I like to spend money (actually, too much!) when it comes to art, especially for visiting museums and exhibitions. However, this museum is overpriced. You actually pay 8 euros for the single visit (you can also buy a cumulative ticket with other museum) which is too much with respect to what you can find inside. Actually, the museum features work... More
