Nice piece of antiquity

This partial remain of a forum and bath is interesting. They are also on the other side of the town opening up a new roman bath area.

This attraction is the most recommended one especially for all those who love history. One can go and see this ruins through once s/he are walking around the city. The views from this place are amazing and the ruins are great too.

The problem with Greek/Roman ruins is that they are in most cases pretty similar. Preservation is the key. With, for instance, Ephesus as a benchmark, Volterra's Teatro Romano underperforms. Given that you have an almost bird-eye possibility of enjoying in from the town walls, it is hard to find arguments for paying an entrance fee.

Volterra is a really interesting town, and the Etruscan site at the top of a hill is the oldest part. It's an interesting site, impressing on you how sophisticated the Etruscans were, with architecture similar and older than Roman building. The site isn't large, and takes less than an hour.

You'll get great views of the ruins from the city wall promenade. An easy walk along Via Lungo le Mure.

We used Rick Steve's guide for a walking tour and were pleasantly surprised by this wonderful Roman ruin.

Spend longer looking for parking in Volterra then walking around the amphitheatre - in hindsight it was a mistake to drive there mid afternoon and expect it to be simple. Parking was a nightmare and consisted of getting waved on from full car parks with no signage on alternatives. The attraction itself was great for a quick walk round and... More

Amazing ancient roman theater but when we visited it it was a little bit dirty. I think they should take care of this kind of things

Smaller version of what you will experience in Rome, but still as impressive in its own right. Take your time and try to imagine what this was like centuries ago. Only 3 euro entry fee and definitely worth it. Self-guided. Would do this again.

Saw these ruins of a Roman theater from above only - which was fine for me. There are tour guides that can give you information on these during part of their walking tour, our audio tour only gave a very brief description of this. The background view of this made a beautiful setting. Amazing how old these are and still... More
