The territory of the Alta Val di Cecina occupies the southern part of the province of Pisa and preserves the testimonies of millennia of present of human activity, in a singular landscape context. The ancient settlements, still clearly identifiable, dot the landscape. The fortifications on the highest hills, the villages, the parish churches. In addition to these, the vast wooded areas, the extensive rocky outcrops, with rugged reliefs and deeply incised valleys.
And finally, the peculiar landscape of the geothermal area and of the vapors of endogenous natural manifestations, or the mountain environments of the highest elevations, at the sources of the Cecina river. Watercourses, rivers of great environmental value, as well as faunal presences of considerable interest, are within this context there is a dense network of paths, in the areas of Berìgnone and Monterufoli.
Volterra, jewel of Etruscan, Roman, medieval and Renaissance art, dominates the entire Cecina valley from the hill of 550 meters to the sea.
In Volterra history has left its mark with continuity from the Etruscan period until the nineteenth century, with very important artistic and monumental testimonies, which can be admired simply walking through the streets of the historic center, but also by visiting the three city museums: the Etruscan Museum, the Civic Art Gallery and the Museum of Sacred Art.
Alongside these, an uncontaminated landscape, a quality of life still on a human scale and an artistic craft that is unique in the world: alabaster.
A city to live intensely, to discover little by little, with its atmospheres, its contrasts, the throbbing of a civilization and a culture that make it “unique” and unrepeatable. The ideal destination for a stay in Tuscany, to discover one of the most pristine areas of the region that is at the same time a step away from the sea and from the most important cities of art.
