Although we didn't enter the site you get a wonderful view of the Teatro from the walking track above. Good site to see if visiting Volterra

While on a walking tour of Volterra (an awesome city, by the way), we were told that the folks of this city had found a fairly level piece of terrain and had decided to turn it into a soccer field for their youth. During excavation and the leveling of the ground, this ancient Roman amphitheater was uncovered. Yeah, we understood... More

It is rare to find such complete Roman ruins north of Rome and so we enjoyed touring the old Roman Theatre at Volterra very much. There was a research team setting up laser measurement equipment while we were there and it was fascinating to observe them investigating this wonderful archaeological site. There is an admission fee if you want to... More

OK, it is 5 Euros for admission, but you have the chance to see the details and information you wouldn't have gained if you just walk by as most people do! Evenings and mornings are really nice when there aren't many visitors.

Interesting to note that once you've paid you notice that you can see the ruins from slightly above for free. But hey this is 5 euros that will surely pay for restauration work. Good information is provided to get a better understanding of these ruins. Good to note that the 5 euros also gives access to the Etruscan museum.

Five euros admission, However every thing can be seen for free by walking a short distance along the road above it. Worth seeing.

I was instantly enamored with Volterra. This city is a must-see. Right when you think it couldn't get any better, you turn a corner and look down upon Roman ampitheatre ruins. Seriously. It is amazing to imagine Romans here so many years ago...building this incredible structure so high up. The logistics are mind boggling.

Rather incredible to be walking next to these ruins with their dramatic appearance. Glad we made the trek from Siena to Volterra as it was one of the better sites we saw in our week here.

Fascinating! The whole process of their discovery under the football field then restored by the mental asylum patients. Plus it's not often you get to "look down" upon Roman ruins, which gives you a completely different perspective. Just outside side the walls, the ruins are easy to find and walking distance from the town. You cant wander through the structures,... More

Lots of hiking to be done going downhill (and then obviously back uphill) if you want to really see these ruins (for which by themselves are charged a too-high price.) It rained AFTER we had paid to enter, so we only saw things from above. I am not sure we really missed anything though versus just watching it from "above"... More
