Volterra

Getting there & around

Driving and parking inside the walled town are more or less prohibited. Park in one of the designated areas around the circumference, most of which are free. There’s a four-level underground pay car park beneath Piazza Martiri della Libertà, which is also the bus terminal.

The tourist office carries bus and train timetables. CPT buses (0588 8 61 86) connect the town with Saline (€1.70, 20 minutes, frequent) and its train station. From Saline, 9km to the southwest, there are bus connections for Pisa (€4.80, two hours) and Cecina (€3.35), to which there’s also a train link.

For San Gimignano (€4.35, 1½ hours), Siena (€4.50, 1½ hours) and Florence (€7, two hours), change at Colle di Val d’Elsa (€2.40, 50 minutes), to where there are four runs daily except Sunday.

By car, take the SS68, which runs between Cecina and Colle di Val d’Elsa.
