Volterra e San Gimignano, discover the Etruscan, Roman and Medieval Ages

Share

Volterra is one of the most interesting town to visit in Tuscany. You will discover the presence of different history layers. The ancient  town of Volterra in fact, was a Neolithic settlement and an important Etruscan center with an original civilization. The site has been inhabited as a city since at least the end of the 8th century BC. It became a municipium in the Roman Age and a place of interest of the Florentines, whose forces conquered Volterra in the medieval age.

You will enjoy a walk in the city after arriving through one of the most spectacular panoramic drive between the Volterra clay hills where are hidden quarries of alabaster  used to produce enchanting bright artifacts by the Volterrani craftsmen.

You will walk enjoing a stroll through the medieval streets to the Roman Theatre (1st century BC), the Piazza dei Priori where stands the Palazzo dei Priori. You can walk through the backstreets discovering nice little shops of Alabaster artifacts. You can visit the Guarnacci Etruscan Museum, famous for the funeral urns dating back to the Archaic periods and its main attraction the bronze statuette "Shadow of the Night".

Following you will driven to San Gimignano that still hails today as one of the most impressive medieval hilltowns of all of Italy. When the pilgrimage road to Rome was re-routed in the 15th century, bypassing this hilltown, time stopped. Take a stroll in this quaint walled city through the streets lined with tall and impressive medieval towers. Shops overflow with local goods including tasty meats and cheeses and hand-crafted ceramics.
