While in Volterra we decided to visit Palazzo Viti. While it's not Versailles, it's a charming, beautiful old home. Definitely worth a visit.

It pays to see the Palace when Umberto, the scion of the Viti, is there to tell the lusty tale of ancestors and guests. Alas, he speaks little English, but a translation of the flier is there in 18 languages. In the XIXth century, the...More

This is an interesting place to visit with plenty of well decorated rooms and amazing furnishings and furniture. It does not require a lot of time and you can take some great photos inside.

This building is pretty ordinary from the street but inside it opens up tardis-like into a sizeable town house, still partly occupied by the Viti family. The grand staircase, the ballroom and dining room are particularly impressive. An enjoyable look into the past.

Not the biggest place, but really interesting. Gives a nice view on the of the rich people lived in the past

Of, course, could be bigger. Could have more impresive façades. Could have, should have, didn't. What it did - it brought some touch, something different; nice, complete interiors. At fair price. I wouldn't skip it for sure.
