Relatively uncrowded between Florence and Pisa - Towns with true architectural beauty and charm: mazes of narrow streets, Romanesque churches and beyond them stretches a land of genteel spas such as Montecatini Terme.

WHY VOLTERRA?

Volterra stands on a rocky hill some 1770 feet above the sea level, surrounded by strong walls. The city of Volterra has its roots in 3,000 years of history. It is possible to find evidence and traces from every historical period: The ancient city walls, the imposing Porta all`Arco, the Necropolis of Marmini and the numerous archeological finds conserved in the Museo Etrusco Guarnacci bear testimony of the Etruscan period; the Theatre of Vallebona survives from the period of Augustus and suggests the importance of Volterra under Roman domination. Today the city conserves above all a medieval aspect not only for the 12th century city walls but also because of the urban layout with narrow streets, palaces, tower houses and churches. The Renaissance had an important influence on Volterra as well, from this period are the superb palaces of Minucci Solaini, Incontri-Viti and Inghirami, , the imposing Fortezza Medicea and the Convent of San Girolamo.

Volterra is the city of alabaster par excellence. The large natural deposits of alabaster in its surroundings are considered one of the most precious around the world given its particular compactness, transparency, veins and hardness. The Museum of Alabaster in Volterra displays over 300 alabaster art works made between the 18th and 19th centuries. The private collection has been assembled over the course of 30 years by the Bruchi family.
