The Guarnacci Etruscan Museum

The extroardinarily modern looking, elongated, bronze statuette Ombra della Sera (Shadow of the evening) and the disturbing expressions sculpted on the faces of the elderly figures lying on the Urn of the Married Couple are but two good reasons to visit the museum.

The collection is mostly Etruscan but there is also an interesting prehistoric and Roman section.The museum houses more than 600 cinerary urns in alabaster, tufa and terracotta, a rich collection of coins, ceramics, jewellery, sculptures, utensils, idols and bronze figures.

This impressive display offers an understanding of the eminence of ancient Velathri during the Etruscan period.

The Art Gallery

Since 1982 the Art Gallery has been housed in the Palazzo Minucci-Solaini, a splendid example of late 15th century architecture.

A part of this small but choice collection is the remarkable painting of The Deposition by Rosso Fiorentino, the polyptychs by Taddeo di Bartolo and Cenni di Francesco, The Pietà by Francesco Neri da Volterra, two polychrome wood sculptures by Francesco Valdambrino, Christ in Glory by Domenico Ghirlandaio, The Annunciation and Holy Conversation by Luca Signorelli and an interesting display of Medieval sculptures,ceramics and coins.

The Museum of Sacred Art

The paintings, sculptures, vestments and ecclesiatical items on display have been collected from the cathedral and the churches of the diocese. Of particular interest are the seven 14th century rectangular marble reliefs depicting episodes from the lives of Saints Vittore and Ottaviano, two splendid paintings, one from the church of Ulignano by Daniele Ricciarelli and the other from Villamagna by Rosso Fiorentino, a rare 16th century ciborium in alabaster and a fine collection of reliqueries

Holiday apartments in a real farm in the countryside of Volterra in Tuscany

Framed by the splendid hilly landscape of Volterra and her ‘Balze’ (crags), and situated in the sunny Tuscan countryside, is the holiday farm Santa Vittoria. Here we offer relaxing and timeless farm holidays, in eight harmoniously restored apartments equipped with every convenience to make your stay as pleasant as possible.

The agritourism facilities consist of two independent farmhouses – Riparbella and Collevicchi – located on two main, but separate, hills from which one can enjoy unforgettable views. The estate is open all year round, given the attractive and different shades of the colours of nature during the varied Autumn and Winter months, for hunting enthusiasts and lovers of traditional Tuscan cooking.
