Volterra guided tour:
We will take you to a trip between time and beauty from the Etruscan to the modern age, passing through the Roman Empire Era and Renaissance.
The monuments in town we usually cover:
Piazza dei Priori, the main square, center of civic power since the 8th century
Porta All'Arco, the 4th BC Etruscan gate to the city walls
ruins of the Roman Theater (1st c.BC ) and Roman Baths (3rd c.AD) from the walls above the ruins
Romanesque Cathedral, recently restored, and the Baptistery of San Giovanni, an octagonal structure dating back to the 13th c. with a façade decorated in the classic two-tone of white and green marble
a visit to a laboratory of alabaster, the stone of Volterra, traditionally worked since ancient times.
3 hours minimum time and interest permitting, we can also visit the Guarnacci Etruscan Museum, one of the earliest public museums in Europe, and/or the Pinacoteca ( museum with medieval and renaissance art).
This can be a private walking tour of 2/3 hours.
Costs will be given on request
