Livorno Shore Excursion: Volterra and Pisa Private Day Trip

The "magic and mysterious" city of Volterra has its roots in three thousand years of history. Its isolated position has impeded any progressive development. 
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. 
Guided visit to the close Etruscan, medieval and renaissance town of Volterra, including a laboratory where is working one of few handicraftsmen in town making alabaster objects. Then Pisa and its Square of Miracles. The Cathedral and its Leaning Tower, the Baptistery and the Camposanto are all found in the Square of Miracles, one of the most beautiful squares in Italy and the world, a UNESCO World Heritage Site
