Description


Volterra Orientation Tour


You will meet your driver at ship dock or at tender mooring; he will wait for you handling the Onirikos arrival board.

He will drive you to Volterra where you will meet your Professional Guide in order to experience a unique excursion in Florence.

The “magic and mysterious” city of Volterra has its roots in three thousand years of history. It is possible to find evidence and traces from every historical period which gives the artistic city a unique aspect.

The ancient city walls, the imposing Porta all’Arco, the Necropolis of Marmini and the numerous archeological finds conserved in the Museo Etrusco Guarnacci like the Ombra della Sera with its unique profile, the funeral urns and the finely crafted jewellery, bear testimony of the Etruscan period.

The Theatre of Vallebona survives from the period of Augustus and suggests the importance of Volterra under Roman domination.

Today the city conserves above all a Medieval aspect not only for the 12th century city walls but also because of the urban layout with narrow streets, palaces, tower houses and churches.

The Renaissance had an important influence on Volterra but without changing the city’s Medieval character.

From this period are the superb palaces of Minucci Solaini, Incontri-Viti and Inghirami, which are built into the Medieval city, the imposing Fortezza Medicea and the Convent of San Girolamo.

After the visit your driver will escort you back to the Port.

About Us

We offer unique access to some of the most unavailable & undiscovered experiences one can imagine. A Milan shopping experience in a fashion designer’s showroom? A private dinner in Venice on the roof terrace of Peggy Guggenheim? Quad bike trekking on the active Etna volcano with an extreme-sport guide? Whatever your client can dream, we can deliver. We focus on designing non-Googleable experiences—watching the Palio di Siena horse race from a hot-air balloon; visiting the private castle where the Godfather trilogy was shot. Kids love visiting an ice cream factory, while big kids clamor for a chance to drive a Maserati or Lamborghini.

Insider Tip

Visit to Excavation underneath the Vatican • Truffle Hunt in Tuscany or Piemonte • Vasari Corridor in Florence • Private visit to the Sistine Chapel
