Great ruins in a picturesque setting

Voltera is a wonderful city to visit in Tuscany and the Roman Theater and baths are a great historical site to visit. You need to be careful if your driving as the roads to this gem are very narrow and windy. Visit Voltera you will not be disappointed.

The remains of the Roman Theatre and Baths are visible from the roadway and while you can get a little closer by entering the museum site, you cannot go down among the ruins themselves. We had bought a combined ticket with the other sights in the town so it was worth the 20minutes you need to look around.

Situated just on the outside of the walls, this ruined theatre is tucked away in a little enclave. Unlike other ancient sites, you can't walk amongst the ruins, here, but it does give you an idea of what the theatre looked like. The erect part is a more modern reconstruction, but certainly adds to the drama (ahem) of the place.... More

We stood on the town wall to view the Roman Theater. Unfortunately, it was set up with a temporary stage and cheap plastic chairs, which detracted somewhat from the view. We did not go down into the ruins, although I believe you can purchase tickets to do that. The view is free.

As a roman theatre and baths complex it is truly well excavated and well worth seeing. Fortunately you can see the whole complex from above because there is no individual ticket for entrance. We were told we would have to buy a pass for € 14 which entitles you to see other attractions as well. But we only wanted to... More

Everything you think of when you think of Roman baths, the view from the top was the best. We were running late and did not make it to the base. It was under renovation while we were there so there was a few trucks around with dirt.

We looked at these roman ruins from above today and loved doing so. You get a really good view from along the walk on the city wall over the whole area. I would not recommend going in to see it though, it seemed to us you can't actually go amongst the ruins but only look at them from another walkway... More

Definitely check out the Roman Theater when visiting Volterra! It offers an amazing view and the best part is that it was pretty recently discovered during a horse race, when one of the horses stumbled on something in the ground. This led to its discovery! Highly recommended!
