What to visit in the surrounding area
The Hotel Antica Badia is located just outside the medieval walls of the Etruscan city of Volterra, a city of art with over 3000 years of history that can be felt everywhere. Several writings are dedicated to this city, many of which narrate its topographical evolution. Others honor a truly eventful past through evocative eras and events up to the present day. It is also known for being the city of alabaster. His artistic workmanship within workshops offers a unique craftsmanship in the world. It is interesting to visit some museums where works made of alabaster are exhibited; no less so are the artisan workshops that still exist, where skilled hands create true and authentic masterpieces.
We are in the heart of Tuscany with its typical countryside landscapes, among rows of cypress trees, olive groves and vineyards. It is possible to enjoy a very rich naturalistic heritage and a dense network of paths that allow you to discover uncontaminated and evocative areas.
The main waterways, the Cecina river and the Era, cross an area of great environmental and faunal value. A nice walk on a mountain bike or on foot can be really fun to fully enjoy a day spent in the greenery of Tuscany.
Volterra is only 40 km from the sea; in summer you can spend a day in the cool of the pine forests of the Tyrrhenian Coast, take refreshing baths in seaside resorts that have earned the Blue Flag and return, in the evening, to Volterra, with extreme ease:
