Volterra is one of the finest and lesser known hilltop towns tucked away in the heart of Tuscany only a short distance from Florence (72 kms), Siena (50 kms), Pisa (64 kms), and S.Gimignano (29 kms). Idyllically set amidst an evocative landscape of soft rolling hills and lush woodland abruptly defined by barren deep clay walled chasms, gullies and ravines, Volterra, 545 metres above sea level, dominates and divides the Cecina and Era valleys.
