An expert guide will accompany you through the charming streets of the historic town centre, which will allow you to appreciate the extraordinary cultural richness of the area. Fans all over the world appreciate Volterra for its connection to the célèbre “Twilight” saga. Infact the town holds a great deal of legends and folklore connected with the legendary vampire creatures.
