Over 3000 years of history under the transparent floor
Albergo Diffuso Volterra rises on one of the most important archaeological finds in the center of Volterra. The discovery dates back to 2001, the year in which the family that owned the premises for many generations, began the renovation work. A long campaign of excavations has brought to light important archaeological remains. The subsequent installation of a transparent crystal floor allows today to see these incredible findings. Inside you can see an Etruscan city wall, a part of the main Via Etrusca entrance to the city, an Etruscan well 7 meters deep, a Roman road and a medieval pavement.
