Volterra, The Town

By a complete stroke of genius by Dorothy, our newly recruited sat nav expert, we were delivered to the quieter back gate to the town.

First, lunch.

My favourite Ristorante was closed this day, damn it..  And a I was so looking forward to meeting the two Etruscan waitresses again.

The town square preping for a show.

My favourite Tuscany town.

Camera attention grabbing all the time.

And the art. The tree of life, olive, of course. Lots of alabaster, a major source for thousands of years. No grotesque quarrying as behind Cararra, alabaster is mined, with no sign of landscape scares around.

Gek above the theatre.  No good picture of the arena.  The sun wasn't playing ball to day.
