A typical tour starts from Piazza dei Priori , the political and istitutional heart of the city built in the 13th century . The Palazzo dei Priori dominates the entire square and it is considered the oldest town hall in all of Tuscany. It is still the active town hall of Volterra and it hosts the Civic Museus where foundamental pieces of art are conserved. The religious heart of Volterra is set behind Palazzo dei Priori and it is dominated by the Duomo and the Baptistry of San Giovanni .
Taking a nice a walk with your local guide until the Porta Fiorentina we can find , outside this medieval exit, an amazing testimony of roman time that appears still untouched : the Roman theatre of Vallebona.
Another foundamnetal step is the archeological Guarnacci musem that hosts a mysteriuos bronze statue called Shadom of the Evening and for its particolar and unique shape became a sort of simbol of the city.
Finally, don’t forget to enjoy a breathtaking view from the balcony of Piazza dei Martiri della Libertà: a natural window opened to the vast countryside around Volterra and from where, sometimes, we can spot the shining line of the sea on the distant horizon.
