Volterra (Tuscany)

Volterra is a walled mountaintop town in the Tuscany region of Italy of which its history dates to before the 7th century BC and has substantial structures from the Etruscan, Roman, and Medieval periods. When the Florentine Republic fell in 1530, Volterra came under the control of the Medici family and later followed the history of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany. There are really a lot of things to see: the Volterra Cathedral, the Fortezza Medicea, the Guarnacci Etruscan Museum and the Etruscan walls are only some of the main sights in Volterra.

We have bought a house in Tuscany, rented an apartment to move into while we work on the house, and will be driving over at the beginning of November with our dogs to start our new life.

We have bought a house in Tuscany and it was a complete renovation job.

It is not yet habitable and we are paying Enel bills every two months.

it will be a year at least before we can move in but they now want to meet as the house is empty.

Can they charge more?
