Nice city park and in the mid day I went to check out the birds, found a bench and quickly dropped off. Never felt as if someone would take advantage of me. Children play area is also within the park.

Parco archeologico provides an opportunity to take in some great views and relax from exploring Volterra. It has a pretty good children playground, invaluable for a diversion if you travel with a toddler or a primary-schooler. It also serves as an entry point to the etruscan acropolis, which we bypassed.

If you can’t make it round here, then don’t go to Pompeii! The archaeological park is quite small and the entrance charge - which also includes a visit to the amphitheatre on the other side of town - reflects this. You can see the park through the wire fence if you don’t want to spend any money but you will... More

This is spectacular and we hadn't known it was here. A fabulous amphitheatre and circus. It was the opposite side of town from our hotel and we came across it in the evening sunlight. Magic.

Not much there really. We had a ticket from the Etrucscan Museum that got us in though. It takes 10 minutes. Use your time on something else in Volterra.

Open space and a place for children to play and to let off steam. You need imagination to see the archeologic implications of the work that is currently being done. Good views across the city.

There was no one else here when we visited and we were able to explore the site and put our imagination to use - so what was it like here, when....? Worth the walk up and a pleasant park at the top to sit and watch the world go by.
