A small Plaza, not overwhelming or a long walk. A good hub from which to explore the rest of Volterra. Fun shops, Gelato everywhere, and restaurants enough. Had a splendid afternoon there, before moving on to San Gimignano. The Etruscan Museum was interesting, too, and the Roman amphitheater was interesting. Very enjoyable drive to Volterra, and beautiful countryside. Loved it!

Volterra is by far the nicest town in the area and has lots of wonderful streets to explore and views to see. The Piazza de Priori is at the heart of it all and a nice place to hang out or grab a coffee, but make sure you explore further afield also!

The fans of the Twilight saga will surely be familiar with Volterra, as a part of the novel and movie “New Moon” is set there. While in Piazza dei Priori, an amazing Medieval square crowned by a majestic palace, you will feel like you’re Bella Swan, who came to Volterra to rescue her beloved Edward.

We parked close to the hill-top entrance and very much enjoyed this lovely Piazza and the old winding streets. Plenty of options for beautiful views, restaurants, and shops.

There is really not much to see. In fact, the entire third floor that had numerous glass display cases were ALL empty.

The central square of Voltaire is very remarkable and romantic. Surrounded by interesting stone buildings, there are many cafes and restaurants. There were many people during my visit.

The Piazza dei Priori is Volterra's central square with some major buildings aournd it, including the Palozzo dei Priori. Nice, but also nothing to dream about.

Piazza dei Priori is the main square located in the old town of Volterra, in Tuscany Region, in Italy. It is a wonderful square, where you can see very nice buildings like Palazzo dei Priori (nowadays the town hall) or Palazzo Pretorio. Also, we came here, when Volterra 1398AD fair was done (in the middle of August-2019), and in this place there were a lot of medieval dances with typical clothes of this period. Really, charming! for children and adults!

This was just overall a sweet town in Tuscany to visit. If you're wandering the area, make sure this is one of your stops.

Breathtaking medieval city on the top of hill above the Tuscans landscape. The castle and city rule the surrounding fields for thousands of years from age of Etruscans to current tourist invasion time. Everybody must see who would spend time Tuscany.
