ancient Italian civilization. Already flourishing in the Middle Ages, it reached its maximum splendour in

walls, gates, palaces and streets, Volterra was the last town to fall under the rule

of Rome. We recommend visiting Guarnacci Etruscan Museum, and then taking

a walk through the archaeological area. After discovering the Etruscan past, you

Fortezza, the Pinacoteca, the Duomo and the Alabaster Ecomuseum, where the

major sculptors of Volterra exhibit their creations carved in white stone.

Lucca, a city rich in history and the birthplace of great musicians like Puccini and

Boccherini, which is undoubtedly one of the most pleasant surprises that a

traveller can find in Italy. A stroll through the historic centre will become an

exciting time travel through this sleepy city surrounded by the reddish belt of its

historic brick walls dating back to the sixteenth century. In the city centre, the

characteristic oval square built on the floor of an ancient amphitheatre, is

another of the many attractions of this medieval jewel. Return to the hotel. (B)
