    Day 13d. Volterra, Priori Palace

    August 17, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    We bought a tourist card for Volterra that is valid for 72 hours for 26 Euros for two people.
    There is a festival tomorrow in the town square so we visited the two attractions that will be closed to us tomorrow, Palazzo dei Priori and Acropoli Etrusca.
    The most ancient palace in the Piazza dei Priori is the Palazzo dei Priori, the present day Town Hall designed by Richard of Como.
    The building work began in 1208 and was completed in the middle of the 13th century.
    Volterra's Palazzo dei Priori is the oldest Government Palace in Tuscany. It served as the model for most of the Government Palaces built there during Medieval times.
    We walked to the public park about 5:15pm where the acropolis ruin is situated however the entrance was already closed and preparations underway for the festival tomorrow.
