DESCRIPTION
Volterra Lo - Amongst small streets and ancient paths

A short walk from the Roman Theatre in Volterra and the Porta Fiorentina, in what used to be once upon a time a nunnery, a small hotel can be found offering 17 bedrooms and one suite.
The hotel is surrounded by ancient paths and narrow pretty lanes in this gorgeous etruscan town, rich with art treasures.

The building was bought during the second half of the 18th Century by an historian very passionate about the history of the Estruscans.
He has set amongst the ancient stones of the front of the building many of the finds he dug out himself during the various archeological excavations.
The front of the building is adorned with cinerary etruscan vases with funeral urns from the hellenistic period with fabulous animal depictions and scenes of the journey into the netherworld.
