Volterra “Ice Cream Special” 2021
The visit we propose includes the scenic Piazza dei Priori, overlooked by the Palazzo dei Priori and many other buildings that formed the political heart of the city in the Middle Ages. Behind the square there are the Romanesque Cathedral and the Baptistery of San Giovanni, built in the thirteenth century. The visit then continues in the dense maze of medieval streets where it will be possible to admire Palazzo Viti, the church of San Michele and the archaeological site of the Roman Theater. Volterra is still surrounded with medieval city walls and in some places it is still possible to see the mighty Cyclopean walls of the Etruscan age with the famous Porta all’Arco, from the fourth century BC. The city, dominated by the Medici Fortress, offers numerous panoramic points where the look can move over the typical landscape of the “balze”, the surrounding valleys and up to the sea.
At the end of the visit, your guide will accompany you to the award-winning artisan ice cream parlor “Isola del Gusto”, in the historic center, where all participants can taste a refreshing and restorative ice cream offered by us.
