Don't pass up Volterra, the town is beautiful and the views from the city walls are worth the trip alone.

The Porta all'Arco was built by the Etruscans and appears to be one of the first examples of "arch" of the human civilization. This monument made it possible to understand the forces of the arch, and therefore the possibility of building more levels in height. The great Rome, arrived after the Etruscans, probably built its palaces using this methodology.

The best preserved Etruscan gateway in Italy dating from the 4th century. From here a pretty road winds its way uphill to the Piazza dei Priori. The area evidences a lot of Middle Ages mostly clustered around the main square. Its dominated by the oldest town hall in Italy. So much to see and do
