Excellent views of the Tuscan country side. you can't go wrong in this place. It is beautiful everywhere you look, even if it's raining.

The cliffs have been fenced off, and it is difficult to get an overview. Better look at them from a distance.

We've taken our car to the campsite and walked 200m to the "viewpoint" of the Balze cliffs. Except there is nothing to see there as the view is blocked by overgrown trees and bushes. Reading the other reviews, the hike from the city is amazing,...More

The views area amazing, although I can't imagine the walk in the absolute heat of summer. I am sure sunset would be breathtaking. Take your time and drink in the scenery.

This is a very good place to see the views from part of Volterra and an excellent location to watch the sun set.

When visiting Volterra it's a must to visit the 'Balze'. It's a spectacular view to see these 'Tuscan cliffs'. It taks a walk starting from the city but the spectacular view makes it good.

It's a great view of Volterra and the surrounding countryside. There are some walking paths and a very nice CAMPSITE, with good facilities. However, if you are short of time, you can skip it. There are beautiful views everywhere in Tuscany

Striking cliff formation showing eroded strata of soft rock. Is best viewed from track opposite rather than from the area indicated by the signs.
