Volterra etruscan town wine and food tour de gustibus
In the morning we will visit Colle Val d’Elsa ( famous for its crystal, with the opportunity to participate in a workshop – to be quoted separately depending on availability) or San Gimignano according to your preferences.
Then, so well known around the world for being the place where the episodes of the Twilight New Moon saga were filmed… Volterra: famous for the extraction and processing of alabaster, is a notable historical Etruscan’s center, Roman ruins ( the theater ) and medieval buildings like the Cathedral, the Medici fortress and Palazzo dei Priori on the main square, all in the main center of town. It will be an adventure to retrace the small alleys and then look out the view at the surrounding hills. And here is where you could visit the Etruscan museum (at your choice, and expense). On the way back we could make an additional stop at a member-producer for an organic wine tasting.
