Why is Volterra such a famous historical destination?
The magic and mysterious city of Volterra has its roots in three thousand years of history. It is possible to find evidence and traces from every historical period which gives the artistic town a unique aspect.
The ancient city walls, the imposing Porta all’Arco, the Necropolis of Marmini and the numerous archeological finds conserved in the Museo Etrusco like the Ombra Della Sera with its unique profile, the funeral urns and the finely crafted jewelry, bear testimony of the Etruscan period.
Today the city conserves above all a Medieval aspect not only for the 12th-century city walls but also because of the urban layout with narrow streets, palaces, tower houses, and churches. The Renaissance had an essential influence on Volterra but without changing the city’s Medieval character.
