Volterra is an enchanting walled hilltop town with Etruscan roots (4-6 centuries BC) and later, much Roman influence. The town's narrow medieval streets and its central piazza will make you fall in love. You'll appreciate the beauty of the 13th century Palazzo dei Priori which sits tall over the piazza, as well as the Palazzo Pretorio across the square. The August 'Volterra AD 1398' festival, held on the middle weekends in August, is a highlight. During these weekends, Volterra as it was in the late 14th century, is recreated with shows, events, markets, workshops, music and juggling. The town is located in the Valdera region of Central Tuscany between Pisa and Florence where this colourful landscape of rolling hills dotted with medieval villages, castles and lanes flanked with tall dark green cypress trees, epitomises the Tuscan landscape. Meandering through the countryside of Valdera you feel the vestiges of the mysterious Etruscan civilization. In Lajatico the famous tenor, Andrea Boccelli, has created the 'Teatro di Silenzio' where natural landscape creates a breathtaking setting for an open air music and opera festival attracting top musicians from all over the world for special performances. Casciana Terme has thermal waters and spa facilities and is a pretty town with piazzas and cafès serving the local wine. The città d’arte (cities of art) nearby include San Gimignano, Palaia and Florence all of which offer wonderful history, art and architecture. A perfect base from which to explore the whole of Tuscany and beyond.
