Etruscan Museum born in 1761, it is one of the oldest public museums in Europe. Inside there are many Etruscan finds, among which we mention the Aviletite stele, the Ombra della Sera and a collection of over 600 cinerary ulne.
Pinacoteca it was opened in September 1905, is a destination of great interest in the academic world and for art lovers. Inside stands the Deposition by Rosso Fiorentino, a great work, made famous by Gabriele D’Annunzio in his “Forse che si, forse che no”.
Alabaster Ecomuseum tells the ancient Volterrana tradition of working this stone. It is an environmental museum that leads the visitor from the quarry of the stone to its processing and marketing.
Palazzo dei Priori is the oldest municipal building in Tuscany, its construction dates back to 1208. Inside it is possible to admire the frescoes in the Sala del Consiglio, the painting Le Nozze di Cana by Donato Mascagni and a Crucifix and saints by Pier Francesco Fiorentino.
Etruscan Acropolis rises in the highest part of the city. In Etruscan times there were two Temples, both facing east, plus pools and waterways. The archaeological finds still demonstrate today all the majesty and spirituality of the Etruscan civilization.
Roman Cistern is an imposing work dug into the earth 21 meters long, 14 meters wide and 10 meters high. The cistern collected rainwater which flowed in through a series of pipes placed on the top of the walls.
Roman Theater It is a majestic monument dated 13 AD. Its construction was financed by the rich Etruscan Volterran family of the Caecina. The extraordinary remains of the ancient buildings can all be visited from inside.
