Volterra

Cities and Towns in Tuscany

Encircled by impressive walls and topped with a grand fortress, Volterra sits high above the rich farmland.  More than 2000 years ago, Volterra was one of the most important Etruscan cities, a city much larger than the one we see today.  Greek-trained Etruscan artists worked here, leaving a significant stash of art, particularly funerary urns.  

Eventually Volterra was absorbed into the Roman Empire, and for centuries it was an independent city-state.  

Today, Volterra, unlike the other famous Tuscan towns in Tuscany has a very real and vibrant feel. It is less touristy, perhaps because of its position, but also because it has maintained a less commercial feel than some of its neighbors.

The gorgeous countryside surrounding the town, beautiful rolling hills and 360 degree views make Volterra a worth-while stop in Tuscany. On a clear day you can even see the sea from here.

Client Testimonials

Dear Guiseppe and Jesse,
We just returned from our most wonderful vacation to Italy and wanted to first thank you for putting together such a wonderful trip, and second to provide some feedback for the future.

Hotels
1. Hotel Sovestro in San Gimignano was wonderful. The staff were very friendly and helpful and made the first portion of our journey very stress free. They made us feel like we were part of their family. I would recommend it to anyone and would specifically ask for it if we were to make a return visit.

2. Hotel La Baia in Monterosso was nice and it's location was very good especially for us older folks humping luggage from/to the train station.

3. Hotel Lucchesi in Florence- what can I say expect FANTASTIC. The rooftop view at sunset is well worth it. Again very friendly and helpful staff. Would recommend it to everyone.

Wine Tour
Money well spent. We had a great time overall. The driver Mario was OUTSTANDING. He had lots of local knowledge as well as about winemaking. USE HIM AGAIN!!!

The various wineries we visited on tour:
Altesino- fantastic and they were not cheap on their pouring. Great experience.
Azienda Agricola Patrizia Cencion Sloaria- Again a great tour by one of the owner's daughters. We felt like we were the only thing on their mind although there were other customers there. A great way to complete the day.

Again we had a fantastic time and are very appreciative of everything you booked for us. We wish you continued success and if our travels should bring us back to Italy, we know who to call.
