We all agreed we enjoyed Volterra more than San Gimignano despite the latter being more famous. We started off here in the Palazzo and got the multipass. The first floor has an explanation and several models of how the town developed during the Etruscan era...More

We visited the town hall and council chamber but the highlight was climbing the tower. Only allow a few at a time but excellent views across idyllic countryside. Well worth a visit

Everything says they close at 17:30 but they were already closed at 17:15 after we walked all the way up there. There’s also my addition items on display over three floors.

Not the Italian restaurant you're expecting. Food was OK, atmosphere OK, waiter not your friendly person to talk to, but was a local restaurant.

Great art work in the first floor of the palace. You can then climb up to the bell tower for some unreal views of the city and countryside. Warning! watch the time when in the tower the bell.The bell rings right over your head.

On a nice day, it's worth going to the top of the bell tower in this beautiful palace! We purchased a combined ticket for this, the Alabaster and Etruscan museums. Worth it!

My parents and I just rented a little house near Poggibonsi and I was scouring our Rick Steves's guide for things to do. Steves weighs in on Volterra and San Gimignano, coming down firmly on the side of Volterra. Go! Go! Go! Indeed the town...More

It is interesting to visit, but not that special, because there is a lack of information regarding what you are seeing.

Really good price for the hotel. However, it was a bit out in the sticks away from pretty much everything. The scenery was great and it was about a 15 minute drive from Siena city centre. The breakfast buffet (that you pay something like 8€...More
