Description

Get to know Volterra in all its beauty from an “Etruscan” point of view. The Etruscans were people of ancient Italy who lived between the ninth century B.C. and the first century B.C. in an area called Etruria which included the territory of Umbria, Lazio and Tuscany. The Etruscan civilization was discovered thanks to the great archaeologists who dedicated themselves to discover the world of our subsoil. Digging in the earth they managed to study the historical finds, so that today we can boast the presence of numerous archaeological museums, one more interesting than the other.
Today we are able to tell how the Etruscans lived, how they conceived the concept of death and life after death, we know what objects they used, what they wore and also what they ate.
Volterra is known all over the world for the importance of its archaeological heritage: from the numerous traces of the first civilizations to one of the most important Etruscan cities, an active administrative center in Roman times, up to the Middle Ages.
This is a tour to immerse yourself in history walking through the picturesque alleys and the main sites of the village. At the end of the tour, you will admire the archaeological treasures preserved in the Etruscan Guarnacci Museum.
