The palace is really beautiful inside and It doesn't take that long to view it (depends on your interest). The family photos make it that much more fun to view. Would recommend if you're nearby

While in Volterra we decided to visit Palazzo Viti. While it's not Versailles, it's a charming, beautiful old home. Definitely worth a visit.
