You can breathe all the magic of the past. Stone walls and alleys, majestic buildings and pristine nature: each element recalls a glorious time, made of history and breathtaking views. Only a city so suggestive could be the ideal setting of the Twilight saga: a story that speaks of an impossible and tormenting love.
The tour of Volterra begins with the entrance into the city center through the Porta all'Arco: from here we are immediately projected into an atmosphere full of mystery that will accompany us to the narrow Vicolo Mazzoni. In the small and steep alley, where the sunlight is rarely filtered, there is also the manhole where Edward and Bella stop for a passionate kiss: a fundamental stop for fans of the novel and for those who want to relive its romantic atmosphere .
 From Vicolo Mazzoni it is possible to reach Piazza dei Priori, for centuries the city's political heart, where the austere Palazzo dei Priori stands out. Inside, among the frescoed walls with bright colors, other events of the novel take place, and from its windows it is possible to dominate the whole city and the roofs over which the Mayer vampires fly at night. Under the Campanaria tower you will wait for 12 for the noon tolls.
This tour of Volterra gives you the unique opportunity to learn about the history and origins of the city, not to mention the literary traces left in the last few years by the Twilight saga: a fun and original way to travel to discover new places.

The tour will continue to Montepulciano for a tasting of the famous red wine of Montepulciano, from here we will return to Rome.
