Beautiful view from the park (free). The 5euro price for the ruins is higher than it's worth. I'm interested in the Etruscans so that's the only reason I went. Though you get entrance to the Roman Teatro also, so that might make it worth it; I didn't go to that due to limited time.
At first sight there is not much to look at but make sure you do not miss a visit underground to the cistern, also included in the admission is the Roman amphitheater on the other side of town provided you visit it the same day. The amphitheater is the more interesting site and can be viewed quite easily from surrounding... 更多
When you have see some of the other Etruscian and Roman archeologic remans, then this is a bit disappointing. Not so much to be seen to be honest.
This attraction was suggested to me from a friend of mine and I went to see it once there and it was simply magical both the site and also the views of the city one can see from up there.
Apart from the Etruscan remains, and later Roman building foundations unearthed, there isn't too much else to see here. There is a reasonable climb up from the town, not good forushchairs etc.
First, its not a difficult walk. I agree its poorly signed and we walked around the park for a bit not realizing it was right in front of us. The cisterns make it worthwhile and while compared to other ruins they arent that spectacular they are what almost 3000 years old!, Im glad we went
We had difficulty finding the entrance to the park, it is not well signed for directions. The Etruscan Acropolis site is well signed with information boards but the area around the ruins are a bit overgrown with weeds. Ruins and weeds, usually work well side by side but if the ruins don't have much height, like these, it is hard... 更多
These ruins are nice, I would not make a special trip to Volterra just for this but I definitely recommend stopping by if you are in the city. I would suggest looking at it from the viewing point above.
This is a large open area that is not well advertised and most of our group missed it. At first sight it is just a pleasant grassy place where kids can run around or you might have lunch but the slightly hidden attraction is the Etruscan acropolis. Access is limited because of the nature of this important archaeological site but... 更多
This is really nothing special, there are far more interesting archeological sites in Italy, but it's worth taking a walk through the park without entering the archeological site.
