Set in a hilltop village in the middle of the triangle between Florence, Siena and Pisa in the area of Val di Cecina which boasts beautiful Tuscan countryside and a rich heritage.

The area around Volterra abounds with hilltop villages, vineyards and olive groves. There is a strong tradition of festivals - there are many over the summer months including concerts, medieval pageants and food and wine tasting.

Volterra is where Stephanie Meyer's popular novel, New Moon, (from the Twilight trilogy) now a film, is set. To get lost in the cobbled streets and piazzas is to breathe in the authentic air of Tuscany lost in a time warp.

The food of course is delicious with game specialities inland and seafood specialities on the coast. There are restaurants in Volterra and the surrounding countryside that are very good value. Local wine is available in the supermarkets or sold over the counter at the bars and restaurants. A visit to the famous Tuscan ‘cantinas’ or wine makers offers a pleasant day out and you will come home with some of the best of the local wine.

There are small supermarkets and banks in the nearby villages and larger ones up the hill in the main town of Volterra. Local speciality shops have clothes, leather handbags and shoes, jewellery, art, alabaster, crystal and olive wood items.

For lovers of Opera, this area is home to the world famous tenor, Andrea Bocelli, who gives a local concert here every July at the open air Teatro del Silenzio.

There are many festivals over the summer months including a mini palio at Casole d'Elsa with ceremonies and horse race. Other theme festivals include archery, theatre and food and wine festivals.
