Volterra – 27/4/2016

 

Views from Volterra and street views of Volterra.

Volerra is a town in Tuscany on a mountain top, its history goes back to the 7th century and was once called Velathri. The Romans took over the town and pushed all the Etruscans out then they changed the name to Volterrae. If you take a look around you will see Roman ruins of a theater and a sauna. You can also see to old forts and a fortress called Rocca Vecchia and it was built in the 14th century on a rocky outcropping. There are also walls which surround the city.

In this Tuscan town that we went to comes complete with its own roman amphitheatre and gelato of course. Tristan had school work to complete and Max and Ava didn’t want to go so it was just Josh Andrew and I.
