Memories of Tuscany: Volterra

Memories of Tuscany: Volterra
Our next hilltop town is Volterra known as the gem of Tuscany. Here we are just outside one of the walled gateways. Another medieval town of character and some high towers too. The domed building seen here is The Baptistery San Giovanni.

(The main entrance road is seen below to the left with the parked cars.)

What a lovely looking town...........I like the look of the architecture and the detail you've captured. I love the patches of green from the trees, especially the one in the foreground which anchors the shot nicely.

Another beautiful capture Herb!

Always good to see your breakdown of my photos Keith It was a grand spot where in truth it was probably impossible to take a bad photo.

Keep good. Herb

I love very much all those medieval towns. I'm happy we have the chance to have so much, mostly in Central Italy.

Herb Riddle club has replied to Daniela Brocca club
Italy is just so beautiful Daniela. I loved these hill-top towns as well as the beautiful cities of Tuscany but I liked the Dolomites and Lakes too as well as the Alps and Venice... oh and that is only the start :)

Keep safe, Herb

We have the chance to have every kind of panorama, from sea to the highest mountains in Europe, islands, plaines, hills, vineyards, not to speak of the cities and the archeologic places and much more, every time of the history. We are very happy. keep safe too. Dany

In Volterra I'd been too...both cities I saw several times. But what I saw the first time was Gimigliano.
Have you been there too?
