Holiday in Volterra: This Etruscan, Roman, Medieval town stands on a hill dominating the Cecina and Era Valleys, surrounded by a beautiful, uncontaminated landscape. The quality of life is still on a human scale and the town´s main resource is based on the artistic handicrafts of alabaster, a typical product of this area. Il Casale del Madonnino is the ideal Tuscan Holiday Home for visiting Volterra during the holidays, being at only 20 km. The city still retains traces of its majestic past, from the Etruscan period up to the 19th century. One can easily witness these traces simply walking along the streets of the town centre, admiring the artistic and monumental works of great importance or visiting the town´s three museums: the Etruscan museum, the Art Gallery in Palazzo Minucci-Solaini, and the Museum of Sacred Art and the Palazzo dei Priori.
