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.

... from the towers of the two previous days. The views from the top are again spectacular, and are enhanced by the cloud formations from the storm.
I go back to our room. Issy is awake, so we head off for today's destination. This is the town of Volterra, which is about 30 km from San Gimignano. We decide we will leave the GPS at the hotel today for its own protection. Instead we will trust road signs. It is Saturday, and I think that ...

We spent an afternoon in the near-by hill town of Volterra. It was quaint and ancient (even more so than Rome) and we spent our time shopping and eating and revelling. Aside from our little excursion, we never felt the inclination for more than a short walk from the villa. Tuscany was ...

Turns out, it’s right inside the entrance! Such luck. They have 2 rooms available and the desk clerk gives us both keys for the room of our choice. That was very nice of her. We immediately set out for a walk. First we decide to stop at a ...
Yesterday I finally turned 21 YEARS OLD! I am finally legal in the United States, but sadly I am not there to have my first legal drink since the drinking age in Italy is only 16. I guess my actual celebration will have to wait until I land back in the United States in less than a week! But on a brighter note, how many people can say that they turned 21 in ITALY?! Not very many! As soon as it turned midnight on December 8th, Stephanie and ...
Another early day...walked again to the central Florence to catch our 9:15 am timed entrance to the academia museum. We walked through pretty quickly and arrived at the original statue of michaelangel's David! What a sight! He was huge! The boys were laughing because he was nude but i hope that they remember being able to see him first hand. We are not visiting many museum's but this is the one that i hope they remember! We ...
