Meet your private guide on arrival in Livorno cruise port and relax in your Mercedes minivan on the journey to Volterra.

On arrival, follow your guide on a walking tour of the historic town, perched high in the Tuscan hills. Learn about Volterra’s ancient Roman and Etruscan history as you see the remains of the ancient city walls and the original Etruscan gate, the Porta all'Arco, then stroll around the atmospheric medieval center. Take the time to browse the shops, peek into the many alabaster workshops, and perhaps visit the Guarnacci Museum, renowned for its collection of Etruscan antiquities.

Continue to nearby Bolgheri, driving through the cypress woods and vine-covered hills, then taking a scenic detour through the Ornellaia vineyards. Stop to admire views along the coast, before arriving in Bolgheri, where you’ll have chance to sample local olive oils and tuck into a delicious lunch (own expense) at a traditional enoteca.

Before heading back to Livorno, you can also choose to tour a local winery, including a visit to the vineyards and wine cellars, and a wine tasting (from 25€ per person).

Back in Livorno, your tour ends with drop-off back at the cruise port.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Volterra
It's a pleasant hour's drive through Tuscan hills to the ancient town of Volterra. Volterra sits on a high plateau offering uninterrupted views of the surrounding hills and boasting over 3,500 years of history. It was one of the most important Etruscan cities from 4-6 century BC and is rich in archeological remains, both Etruscan and Roman. The Etruscans built a 7km ring of walls around the city and as you enter the original Etruscan gate, the Porta all'Arco, you will feel you are stepping back in time as you wander the narrow medieval streets and piazzas. Volterra has always exploited its strategic location as well as its numerous natural resources in the land such as salt, alabaster and copper and today it is still an important centre for the production of alabaster. Volterra has 3 museums of considerable artistic and historical value with the Guarnacci Museum holding one of the most important displays of Etruscan antiquities in existence.

From here you can admire row upon row of vines reaching out to the sea towards the island of Elba as your driver gives you a a brief explanation on the wines of this particular area. Upon reaching the centre of Bolgheri, you will have the opportunity to sample olive oil from a local producer and stroll through the picturesque hamlet for a lively lunch at the enoteca (lunch is at your own cost).
