Ancient medieval village in the heart of Tuscany


Volterra, a haven of Etruscan, Roman, Medieval and Renaissance art, dominates the Cecina Valley 550 metres above sea level, affording a spectacular view as far as the sea. The city retains traces of its majestic past which gradually unfurls as you wander through the narrow streets and explore the Etruscan Museum, the Art Gallery and Museum of Sacred Art.

Volterra is a well preserved Medieval hilltop town dotted with 13th century house towers and crowned by the main square, the Piazza dei Priori, where traditional events continue to take place all year round.
Just behind the main square, the Piazza San Giovanni where the Romanesque Cathedral and Baptistery are situated. The recently renovated Cathedral is well worth a visit to admire the prestigious works of art including the 13th century group of wood sculptures the Deposition and the 12th century pulpit.
