Volterra

 

DESCRIPTION

With its captivating beauty, Volterra is often considered one of the most magical Tuscan hill towns.  The city's layout is a testament of its Etruscan origins, and the town walls, which were built in the 4th century BC, remain largely in tact even today.  An authorized guide will accompany you through the historic centre's beautiful streets and allow you to appreciate the extraordinary cultural richness of the town and its surrounding area.  While you're exploring, don't miss the Palazzo dei Priori, Volterra's Cathedral, and the Medicean Fortress.  The tour continues with a visit to the Museum of Alabastar, the "stone of light" that made Volterra famous all over the world.  Following that, you'll be able to relax with a tasting of typical Tuscan cheeses.  In the afternoon you'll visit San Gimignano a picturesque, quaint, medieval city and also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  You'll be able to stroll through the characteristic streets and alleyways and enjoy extraordinary views of the Tuscan countryside from the many out-of-the-way vantage points that the town has to offer.  Not-to-be missed are the Piazza Duomo with its Collegiate Church and Piazza della Cisterna where you can stop for a gelato in the town's award-winning gelateria.  Towards the end of the tour, you'll stop at a wine cellar where you'll taste a selection of locally produced wines.
