Volterra: Etruscans, alabaster and food specialties
A day in Volterra between history, craftsmanship and typical products

Etruscan and Roman capital, pearl of medieval art, crossroads of people, treasure trove of works of art, the city dominates the beautiful, intact and poignant territory of Valdicecina.
The millennia-long history, art and lifestyle, people and their stories will definitely fascinate you.

This experience will allow you to get to know the city better, discovering both its most and least known corners; you'll visit an alabaster workshop, an activity that for centuries has made (and continues to make) the fortune of Volterra; in addition, an olive oil tasting, a lunch and a dinner based on typical products and dishes of this area of Tuscany and a traditional cooking lesson await you.

Volterra, noble and superb, mysterious and magical, lively and fun will enchant you at first sight.
