Volterra and a wine tasting
We visited another medieval town in Tuscany: Volterra. It was definitely worth the drive — the Etruscan Museum was really interesting and the weather has been perfect.
Etruscan funerary jars line the wall at the museum’s garden.
Built in 1280, this Romanesque basilica is still a living entity.
We then traveled to the Chianti winery of Dievole to meet Giulia’s friend, Angelo, for a tour. It was a highlight of our trip.
We enjoy the view from one of the terraces at Dievole winery.
The first written record of wine growing on this spot was in 1090. The building being used as a hotel today is 400 years old.
It was an amazing day and was our last one at the farmhouse. Tomorrow we head to Florence and the Renaissance.
