9.17.2014 - about 2 hours drive from the coastal town of Castiglioncello. Parking for the walled city of Volterra is Euro 6. But the pay-at-the-kiosk set-up on the ground level before retrieving your vehicle is inconvenient especially if you're multiple levels up or down in the parking structure. Best panoramic view is from the hill-top city wall. No fee. Rather... More

This little village as a lot to see and this place should not be missed. It's true there are so many more ruins like this one and in better condition but if you're around don't miss it. If you get a combined ticket for all the other sites this one is included otherwise just look outside the fence and you'll... More

We were the only visitors at the Roman theater and baths as you can also see the site from the roadside through the fence. But since the city offers a one-for-all-ticket it's easy to go in and have a closer look. I was impressed with the size of the partly reconstructed decor. Signs were plenty and interesting. Baths were less... More

No exhibition, but only a place to visit. You should go there when in Volterra, but eveything is seen from the outside hidden behind a fence. There might be special attractions but normally this is seen from the outside. Great view and should definitely go tere while in Volterra, but do not drive to Volteera just for this. But being...

We have been to so many Roman and Greek ruins that I could not begin to count them. While this one is interesting, it does not compare to those in Agrigento or any most other places in Sicily. Also, nowhere near as fascinating as Herculaneum, Pompeii, or Paestum (my favorite, having the amazing 5th and 6th C BCE perfectly preserved... More

I visited Volterra in the late evening, so this place was closed. However, unless you're a crazy gung-ho Roman ruin aficionado, there's no need to pay even if it's open. Just walk above the ruins on the city walls. You get a great view of the whole place. Very cool.

This Roman theatre was only rediscovered in the middle of the last century. Excavated by the denizons of the local mental hospital. It is unchanged from the way they dug it up after being buried since the Dark Ages. The theatre shapes are well preserved (auditorium, orchestra, stage, vomitoria, etc. but there is little left of the skena) as is... More

We had a tour guide young lady who explained the lovely spot to us. We did not walk down. It was a very nice view from above, the sun was shining and she explained how the actors did their stunts and special affects BEFORE we had movies! We had already seen the huge Colosseum in Rome. This was much easier... More

We arrived in Volterra and decided to go take a walk around the town and we came upon the theatre it was a great discovery and had fun going up to the top of wall and looking down over the ruins and imagining how grand it must of been in its day. We were awe struck at what was left... More
