    We stumbled upon this and we are glad we did! Take a look back into the life and times of a prominent Italian family. What a spectacular home! Walking around Volterra was a treat, stopping for gelato was another. This place is amazing. Go ahead a take just a bit of time to do a tour and walk around this huge home and learn a thing or two!

    The central square of Voltaire is very remarkable and romantic. Surrounded by interesting stone buildings, there are many cafes and restaurants. There were many people during my visit.

    Palazzo dei Priori is the town hall in Volterra, a medieval city in Tuscany Region, in the center of Italy. This building was built in 13th Century and firstly it was used as a house for elders, after it was used as the government of the city or wise council. Really, this main facade located in the Piazza dei Priori is wonderful and you can enter and see some rooms used nowadays as town hall and municipal offices. Very interesting building.

    There is not much left of the Roman theater. We couldn't look inside because they wanted green passports. However, from the outside you can also see very well what exactly is left.

    Walking through the gate you can't stop thinking about all these people who had built it centuries ago. And then you think about the ancient Romans who would also walk through the same gate and think about all these people who had built it centuries before the Rome was even built!
    Amazing transcendental experience.

    We enjoyed our visit to see how Alabaster is formed. Very talented artisans will give you a demonstration. Afterwards you have an opportunity to purchase something small or very large. A little something for everyone. We have a very nice bud vase .

    lovely little church in this beautiful town. Does not take long to look around it but worth a visit when you are in the town.

    It may have been a fortress some time ago, but now it is a prison. You can't go inside, but outside it's a pretty impressive building.

    The well is located next to the gates with the same name and was built in the 13th century. It is not the easiest entrance to the city, because of the steep path with more than two hundred stairs, but it is convenient one, located near the free parking lot.

    The park is Ok, and at the highest point there are remains of the Etruscans. There is not much left to watch and they want a green pass. .

    The ancient, simple church was built for Franciscan monks in the 13th century. It is a plain stone building with interesting interior, containing paintings made by Daddi, Balducci and Naldini, among others. Sadly, the most famous paintings, those from Signorelli and Fiorentino are now kept in other museums.

    An interesting small church with a remarkable frescoed ceiling. It is said to have been built on the site of the house of the second Pope. It was empty during my visit.
