Subjects : The city of Volterra and its splendid territory is, probably, in Tuscany, one of the most varied and rich of attractions. The undisputed historical tradition joins the beautiful nature that offers, from morphology, vegetation and fauna, an imposing patrimony. A Volterra history has left its mark with continuity from the Etruscan period until the nineteenth century, with artistic and monumental remains of great importance, which can be admired simply walking through the streets of the historic center, but also visiting the city museums: the Museum Etruscan, the Civic Art Gallery, the Museum of Sacred Art, the Ecomuseum of Alabaster. Besides these monuments one can find a pristine landscape, a quality of life still a human scale and an artistic handicraft unique in the world: alabaster.

Recommended equipment : I would definitely recommend a wide angle for the beautiful landscapes typical of Tuscany combined with a canvas in order to reach and isolate the farms and dozens of houses and elements sprinkled throughout the zona.Consiglio also a "hunting kit" aimed especially birdlife and even small and medium sized mammals.

Best months : Given the shape of the board, a visit in any season. In spring and summer the hills are characterized by very bright green and yellow tones while in autumn and winter the special feature that I think is more linked to the morning fog that definitely fills the valleys revealing the tops of the hills where there are churches and farmhouses.

How to get there : Volterra is easy to get, though, being at 555 meters above sea level, the last few kilometers are tortuous. You get to Volterra by three main roads: from Cecina (40 km), Colle Val d'Elsa (28 km) or from Pontedera (48 km). For those who travel by train, the station in Saline di Volterra, a hamlet about 10 km from the center of Volterra, is connected only to the Cecina station, with railcar and infrequent runs, mainly during the school period. Sometimes it is trafficking Cecina - Saline di Volterra is made with substitute automotive service always borne by the State Railways.

Visits : Nothing in particular, if not the country itself is characterized precisely by the numerous towers and squares.
