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

As a travel agent, but also a traveler to Italy, thee is no other company I would recommend than the Italy Vacation Specialists. Not only do they really care about what they are doing, they also really know Italy and try to educate many people about ways they can best see the country and not fall into tourist traps.

I have been on 4 trips with the IVS team, firstly when they did my first 2 trips for me and then when I went on their Fam trips for Travel Agents which are educational trips for agents. Nobody does Italy like the IVS team and what I have learned is you can actually save a lot of money by working with this company.
