Discover a land of ancient Etruscans and fictional vampires on a full-day tour to Volterra and its surrounding countryside. Taste some great local wine, and enjoy a full Tuscan lunch along the way.
Following a pick-up from your accommodation in Florence (or elsewhere in Tuscany), transfer to Colle Val d'Elsa, and take part in a craft workshop of its famous crystals. Continue to Volterra to discover the chosen location for the “Twilight New Moon” saga. Learn about its alabaster extraction and processing industry, and notable settlement by the Etruscans.
See architecture enriched by the Romans, and in the Middle Ages, including the ramparts, the ruins of which can still be seen today. Stop for lunch at an organic farm, and learn about ancient farming techniques still in use. Taste local produce from Tuscany, along with regional red or white wines.
En route back to your accommodation stop at a local winery for an organic wine tasting. Toast with your old and new friends for celebrating this authentic experience in Tuscany!
