The traditional products, since ancient times, are ceramics, the Vernaccia wine (the only top quality white wine produced in Tuscany) and saffron.
After visiting the town, it is possible to enjoy a wine tasting or to visit a farm where the saffron is grown.
The beauty of the countryside with the unusual clay cliffs and the mix of different ages (the Etruscans museum, the Roman amphitheatre, the medieval fortress), make Volterra a unique town.
The alabaster (a soft and translucent stone mined near Volterra) is a traditional feature of Volterra and we will find lots of lovely things to buy from this tactile stone and we can also visit a workshop to see how they are made.
