La Locanda in Volterra is a charming hotel within the walls and a short walk from Piazza Priori. The people who run the hotel are very friendly and helpful. It used to be a convent or monastery which is almost impossible to tell as it is today. It has been completely renovated into large comfortable rooms with modern baths and all the conveniences. It is spotless clean and it has an elevator. Breakfast is bountiful with a large assortment of delicious things to choose from. There is a little sitting room for gathering. It looks exactly as it is pictured on their website.
They also have a restaurant in town which is a lovely place with ancient decor. They were so very nice to us and our group. Everyone especially loved their Tuscan bread soup. We even received a bottle of wine per table.
I heartily recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a convenient place to stay in Volterra. We love it and have stayed there several times. We plan to return.
