Le giuste attività per scoprire l’inverno nostrano

Winter can be rather cold and chilly in Volterra especially when the strong northerly winds bluster through and yet when the sun shines it can be really rather pleasant.

It rarely snows but when it does it creates an astoundingly magical aura both in town and the surrounding countryside enhanced by a veil of white.

Winter is an explicit invitation to experience Tuscany in a completely different light, a favourable time to enjoy seasonal culinary delights, to take pleasure in and pay homage to the subdued wintry landscape.

It is during the quiet cold season with fewer visitors that Volterra reveals its true identity and authentic integrity and provides an opening to venture into the everyday life of the local inhabitants as you have a drink in the bars and take part in local events.
