Volterra is a real jewel of Tuscany thanks to its uncontaminated landscape and the ancient relics of Etruscan, Roman, Medieval and Renaissance art. It is known all over the world for its Medieval architecture, narrow streets, stunning squares, museums of Etruscan and Sacred Art and for the production of Alabaster, a unique artistic handicraft. Volterra is located on the east side of the province of Pisa and overlooks the whole valley of the river Cecina to the Thyrrenian sea. It is the perfect base to visit wonderful cities like San Gimignano, Siena, Pisa, Livorno, Lucca, Florence, as well as the coast.
Civil Ceremonies in Volterra are celebrated at the Town Hall, Palazzo dei Priori, located in the main square and heart of the city. The structure is completely surrounded by Medieval buildings like Palazzo Pretorio, or the Bishop's Palace. Civil Ceremonies are held in the City Council Room,decorated with original antique furniture and wonderful frescoes. The tower of the palace, from where it is possible to enjoy a magnificent view of the surrounding area, was originally made of wood, though the present one has been rebuilt after the earthquake of 1846.
Catholic Wedding Ceremonies can be celebrated at the many Roman style churches inside the walled town and in the nearby countryside, boasting incredible views of olive groves, vineyards and sunflower fields. Lovely Farmhouses, independent Villas with gardens and country Chapels are also perfect for Symbolic Ceremonies and Religious Blessings.
