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.
