I dunno how to translate the croatian expression "bogu iza nogu",we use it in case the destination is not easy to be reached and Volterra is one of those destinations. Perhaps it is why some tourists are visiting nearby San Gimignano and then quit of visiting Volterra which is situated at the deadend road. Anyhow, it is worth of trouble because at the end of the road there is beautiful reward.
Volterra is beautiful townlet, lost among the hills of Tuscany, but I found surrounding landscapes much more beautiful then the town itself.
TO BE CONTINUED
I couldn't stop admiring the surrounding landscapes of Volterra, rich of colours in the late August afternoon. Too bad I hadn't my classical camera with, to take the pictures. The fact is, digital camera makes it easier but still, it cannot compite the classical camera regarding natural colours.
I had no idea Volterra has such a rich and long history. Bellow the city walls there is an area where remnants from the Roman times can be seen. Besides the temple and the thermal spa, there is an huge amphitheatre.
There are places we hardly can wait to leave, soonest possible, some other we do remember for a very long time knowing... more travel advice
My general idea was to make a day trip to San Gimignano only, because Volterra seemed to be kind of off the road place.... more travel advice
