In Volterra you will find intact Etruscan city entranceways like Porta all'Arco and Porta Diana, part of the walls and archeological ruins of Roman period such as the theatre and the colommed-baths; from the Renaissance the imposing Medici fortress and elegant palaces such as Palazzo Viti (can be toured). Several interesting Museums: the world class Etruscan Museum and the Pinacoteca (picture gallery), the Alabaster Museum and the Sacred Art Museum.
