Facade with cornices and glazed terracotta plaques. The council room has amazing frescoes. Wooden ceiling withstood centuries of time. Climb up is worth it. Outside there was a huge square where racing cars were parked. Lots of Alabaster shops all around.

While in Volterra, you really should visit this building. It is an important feature of Volterra. It didn't knock my socks off, but is definitely worth seeing.

This is a medieval square well restored where you can walk around at your own leisure and relax. It gives you a taste of the old days.

There is a nice gothic chamber where people like to get married. You can climb the tower for a good view over volterra. Apart from that there is not much that is memorable.

One of our favorite stops in Tuscany! We stayed one night in Volterra so had the opportunity to spend part of the afternoon and evening in the square. The Palazzo is a beautiful Town Hall and there are several great eating spots nearby right in...More
