Favorite thing: My general idea was to make a day trip to San Gimignano only, because Volterra seemed to be kind of off the road place. The local guy whom I met at the cafe-bar suggested me to visit Volterra too, I had other plans for the afternoon but then made decision to follow the suggestion.
Volterra is in a short distance from San Gimignano but it took me hours to get there, I stopped several times while driving there enoying in beautiful Tyscanian landscapes.


Fondest memory: The town is situated on a top of an small hill surrounded with the beautiful but very unusual landscapes which locals call "le balze". Volterra is a typical Tyscanian town-monument place with well preserved medieval structure.
