Volterra is located 10 km away and offers all kinds of shops and restaurants. Volterra is a true regional gem where you can capture that 'hill town experience' in full. From the characteristic main piazza to the Roman ruins, Volterra has something from every century all the way back to Etruscan times. Wander along the Etruscan walls, dating from the 4th century BC, or purchase your own alabaster memento in a nearby shop. Visit museums, the exterior of a 15th century fortress (the interior is a prison!), or sit in the Piazza dei Priori, one of the best town squares in the region-- and the site of many historic and often ****** events. Great day trips include San Gimignano, Siena and Florence.
<b>Nearby Attractions</b>: San Gimignano and its famous towers is one of the most visited towns...
