4. Private Tour in Volterra with Licensed Tour Guide

One of the Etruscan cities par excellence. It still preserves many vestiges of this period as well as the Roman and medieval ones: the Etruscan citygate and Acropolis, the Roman Theater, the Piazza dei Priori, the Cathedral with the Baptistery, and tower-houses. Volterra holds an immense treasure trove of art, archaeology, and craftsmanship; in fact, it is famous for alabaster work, a knowledge that has been passed down for generations. Some of these treasures are preserved in the city's churches and many museums. Volterra was built on high ground, which, if it once provided security, today allows one to enjoy a vast and evocative panorama.
