TravelPod Member ReviewsAlbergo Nazionale Volterra
This hotel looks like it was decorated in 1970 and perhaps it was as 30 years is fairly modern by Voltera standards. The view rooms on the fourth floor make the place grow on you as the view on a clear day is stunning. It is a three star hotel using Italian rules as their rating has nothing to do with aesthetics. The location is perfect and the room is comfortable.

She tells me she got up at 6am and walked 10 km here from the next village. We are finding it hard to talk against the thunder. I feel the ground shake and she looks very nervous. I think Issy might now be awake. Eventually the storm lets up and I head for the tower. ...

... for a glass of wine and bruchetta. Not quite what Nick was hoping for. It was a large piece of bread covered in fresh, diced tomatoes from the oven. I’m not sure if this is authentic or we just got ripped off. After downing our wine, we take a spin around the inside of the town. We stop at the wall to get pictures of the stunning view from atop this hill. You can see all the way to the ocean and it’s clear as a bell. The blue sky is dotted ...
We were officially headed to Lorenzo de Medici's Orientation and were all as giddy as girls could be! The few days we have been here is a lot of exploration and our orientation. It takes about ten to fifteen minutes to walk to class depending on what class im going to. I just try and remember streets that ive been down or look for the Duomo, one of the few landmarks I recognize, if i get lost to redirect me where to go. We struggled to make it through Orientation ...
This morning Ken was up early to take some photos before the crowds came out.He met the street sweepers instead.
Our hotel includes breakfast at the Hard Rock Hotel which is downstairs. It is not your typical Italian cafe, but we had our usual coffee and croissant to start the day. We were the only customers in there. The place is packed in the evening.
