    Very nice to enter the city using the Porta dell'arco, it's worth pausing and note the architectural details.

    Go through the door is like stepping into a history book. is possibly one of the symbols of the city that have made it famous all over the world. worth it though there is making a bit of a pain to get back downtown.

  • Masive etruscan gate from 5th century bc.
  • The Etruscan City with well-preserved. A charming city and exciting atmosphere reminded me of Twilight - New Moon movie.
  • Cool original ancient Etruscan gate was built in 5th century B.C.! There are ruins of 3 heads there, maybe goods.
  • Ancient city, medieval-faced but feature where you can breathe the smell of centuries, of three thousand years of history. From the Etruscans to the Romans, until the middle ages and today Volterra is, and will remain always fascinating, magical, enthralling.

  • The Etruscan gate of Volterra, so-called porta dell'arco, beautiful colors of sandstone blocks and three indistinguishable busts, Tinia, Uni, Mnerva or three severed heads of enemies as a warning? The remakes Romans and medieval ones left complements the airy and powerful Etruscan structure
