While in Volterra we decided to visit Palazzo Viti. While it's not Versailles, it's a charming, beautiful old home. Definitely worth a visit.

This is an interesting place to visit with plenty of well decorated rooms and amazing furnishings and furniture. It does not require a lot of time and you can take some great photos inside.

This building is pretty ordinary from the street but inside it opens up tardis-like into a sizeable town house, still partly occupied by the Viti family. The grand staircase, the ballroom and dining room are particularly impressive. An enjoyable look into the past.

Of, course, could be bigger. Could have more impresive façades. Could have, should have, didn't. What it did - it brought some touch, something different; nice, complete interiors. At fair price. I wouldn't skip it for sure.

Very unassuming and easy to pass by, looks like a storefront from the street. This is a must do while in Volterra. Self-guided tour is well worth doing. Many exquisite treasures on display and up close. Still occupied with current family ancestors, but that, of...More
