Volterra

Volterra - _photo 1

Volterra is a town of great architectural interest set almost 1800 feet above sea level, between the rivers Era and Cecina.

The main landmarks are the central Piazza Dei Priori, the Medicean Fortress and numerous Etruscan remains.

 

The atmosphere of Volterra is enchanting, easily rivalling that of the more famous Tuscan destination of San Gimignano. For those interested in archaeology and history, the Etruscan Museum is a gem and the town is well known for its alabaster workshops.

 

Distance from Borgo Pignano: 15 km.
