The city of Volterra and its amazing surroundings are probably one of the areas which are most diverse and full of attractions in Tuscany. The indisputable historic tradition blends with the wonderful nature which offers, from landform to vegetation and fauna, a really impressive heritage.

In Volterra, history left its mark from the Etruscan period to the nineteenth century, with highly relevant artistic and monumental relics, which can be admired simply walking strolling through the historical city centre but also in the city’s museums: the Etruscan Museum, the Art Gallery and Civic Museum, the Museum of Sacred Art and the Alabaster EcoMuseum.

Close to these monuments, you can admire an unspoilt scenery, a quality of life still human centred and a world-unique artistic craft: alabaster.
