Volterra

da 125 Euro

Description

Naturally, a classic tour of Volterra begins in Piazza dei Priori, the political and institutional heart of the city, built in the 13th century. The Palazzo dei Priori dominates the entire square and is considered the oldest municipal building in Tuscany and still today the seat of the municipality of Volterra and houses the Civic Museum, where fundamental works of art are preserved. The religious center of Volterra with the Duomo and the Baptistery of San Giovanni is located behind the Palazzo dei Priori. After a pleasant walk you will arrive with your local guide at Porta Fiorentina, outside you will find an exceptional testimony of Roman art, which still appears intact: the Roman theater of Vallebona. Another fundamental destination is the Guarnacci archaeological museum, which preserves a mysterious bronze statue, called the Ombra della Sera, its shape has become a symbol of Volterra. Finally you will enjoy a spectacular view from the balcony of Piazza dei Martiri della Libertà: a natural window overlooking the vast countryside around Volterra and from where sometimes with the right light you can see the sea far away on the horizon.
