Unlike other famous Tuscan towns, Volterra feels real and vibrant. Volterra was a vital trading center and has a tradition of craftsmanship that attracted various types of artists in the past. On Via Porta all’Arco - a steep, atmospheric street - you'll find a rich variety of handiwork shops selling books, paper, jewelry, and leather. At the end of this street, you'll see the main square of Volterra, Piazza dei Priori, dominated by the historical City Hall.
