Description
Culture & Lifestyle
The city of ‘wind and stone’, this is how the famous Italian poet Gabriele D’Annunzio defined it, but it is also the city of pure alabaster.
It was one of the most important Etruscan cities. The guided tour starts by visiting the last Etruscan city-door still standing, the Porta dell’Arco , set within the medieval walls. It dominates the green Era valley, a picturesque and rural landscape which extends to the sea.
The tour continues entering the heart of the Medieval Volterra. We will visit the Duomo, where inside is the famous, wooden Deposition and paintings of Benozzo Gozzoli and Fra Bartolomeo, and the Romanesque Baptistery.
Following the ancient winding roads, along the prevailing medieval tower-houses , the tour will lead you to the evocative Roman Theatre, with the adjacent Thermal Baths. It will finish where once was the political center of Volterra, one of the most symbolic squares of the typical ‘Tuscan style’, Piazza dei Priori, where you will be able to see the most ancient Communal Palaces in Tuscany.
