This is an interesting place to visit with plenty of well decorated rooms and amazing furnishings and furniture. It does not require a lot of time and you can take some great photos inside.
This building is pretty ordinary from the street but inside it opens up tardis-like into a sizeable town house, still partly occupied by the Viti family. The grand staircase, the ballroom and dining room are particularly impressive. An enjoyable look into the past.
Of, course, could be bigger. Could have more impresive façades. Could have, should have, didn't. What it did - it brought some touch, something different; nice, complete interiors. At fair price. I wouldn't skip it for sure.
We weren't sure what to expect at Palazzo Viti, but were pleasantly surprised by our experience.

Beautiful plate collection. The palace is 12 rooms so your tour is intimate and the rooms are as they were thousands of years ago.
We initially decided to visit this place because it was pouring with rain during our day in Volterra and it was too early for lunch. We are glad we did. We didn't rush through as we were given a written guide in English explaining all of the various treasures and decorations. This explanation enhanced the experience. At the conclusion, you... 更多
