This is your chance to discover the Etruscan Coast of Tuscany, away from the hustle and bustle of the city!
More than 3000 years ago, before the Romans, an incredible and powerful civilisation coming from Mesopotamia, decide to settle along the coast of Tuscany…they were called Etruscans (Etruschi). One thousand years of power that wrote the history of our Country.
Our first stop on this tour will be Volterra, one of the twelve main cities of Etruria, the Etruscan confederation. There are many interesting sites to see in this town such as The Etruscan Acropolis Ruins, The Medicean Fortress and Tower, Priori Square and Priori Palace, the Cathedral, the Baptistry, The Guarnacci Etruscan Museum, The Museum Of Sacred Art, The Roman Theatre and Thermae, and The Art Gallery, surrounded by the breathtaking landscapes of Tuscany.
Volterra is known also as the Alabaster Capital of the World, don’t forget to get your authentic souvenir in one of the local stores!
Later on we will head to Bolgheri, a charming tiny village closer to the coast and known for its super wines.
Bolgheri is located at the end of Viale dei Cipressi, the longest Cypress Avenue in Italy ( 5 kilometres ) with over 2400 Cypress Trees (1200 on each side of the road). Thanks to the Italian writer and poet Giosuè Carducci (winner of the Noble Prize in Literature in 1906) who lived here most of his life, Bolgheri became more and more famous when Carducci wrote the famous poetry “Davanti San Guido”.
We highly recommend a delicious lunch in one of the restaurants of Bolgheri, we will be happy to reserve a table for you. Authentic local food and wines are waiting for you!
On the way back to the port a Gelato stop is mandatory!
After the tour we will drive you back to the port on time.
Note: the driver might choose to start either from Volterra or Bolgheri depending on traffic and weather conditions.
