We loved this interesting tour with Annie. Annie was so interesting as she told us many stories that brought Volterra to life for us. She certainly has a passion for the town and it's history.

This lady was amazing. She took us from one end of Voltera to the other explaining everything along the way. This is a must do and a Rick Steves’ recommendation.
