It's a small town with Etruscan origins, well known for the extraction and processing of Alabaster. It's located deep inside a countryside unpolluted nature; inside the town center you can visit the Cathedral, the Priori Palace, The Roman Theater and the Medici Fortress with the close Fiuni Park. In the same park you can stop for a picnic open air. Really interesting are the views on the countryside around, in particular the ones on the Balze, typical rocky shapes visible on the sides of the hills. You won't miss a stop to buy souvenirs...obviously made in Volterra's Alabaster!
