How to get there

Volterra is situated in an extraordinary panoramic position between the valleys of Cecina and Era, and it dominates in complete loneliness a waste territory characterized by a multiform and charming landscape.
Only few kilometres, from Cecina river valley to Era river are extended wood areas like Berignone, Monterufoli-Caselli and Montenero forests, that are protected by natural parks. There are a lot of paths you can cover by foot, horse or mountain-bike. They lead in the most magical and evocative points of the forests. Train
