Volterra Transportation: 5 reviews and 7 photos
It's not uncommon for people who live in relatively flat places, or in places with multi-lane highways, to imagine that they know how long it will take to get from Point A to Point B. So hearing that Volterra is 60 km away from Florence might lead such folks to conclude that they might easily arrive a mere hour or so after departure. Setting aside the likelihood of taking a wrong turning in the notoriously poorly-signed rotaries and intersections, there simply is no way to make the drive so quickly. Two-lane roads which wind and twist -- even discounting the glorious landscape which practically requires one to slow down and enjoy the vistas -- are not designed for speedy transportation. I'd allow two hours.
So when you read that San Gimigiano is only 16 km away...better pack a lunch!
