Volterra, already a candidate for European Capital of Culture 2022, is one of the oldest medieval villages in Tuscany, rich in art, history and culture that attracts tourism from all over the world in an area that stretches between the provinces of Pisa, Livorno and Siena, boasting cultural initiatives of international stature. The authenticity of the village has been preserved intact thanks to its relative isolation that has limited the development of the historic centre, safeguarding the ancient village from modern-day building speculation, allowing the original structure to remain intact.
Walking inside the walls of the historic centre is a unique experience, every corner is a treasure trove of art, every house has a long story to tell, already in Etruscan times 3,000 years ago, the Val di Cecina was the link from the sea to the lucumonia of Volterra, one of the most powerful cities of the time. Not far away is the Teatro del Silenzio, where Andrea Bocelli holds a concert once a year that attracts fans and others from all over the world.
