Memories of Tuscany: Volterra Street detail

Memories of Tuscany: Volterra Street detail 

Volterra is another town of tight narrow streets and alleyways as can be seen here. I believe it was common practice to build arches joining high buildings that were close together to counter earthquake damage in such areas. Of course the streets are narrow so that the buildings can give cool shade, and the heights were driven by the needs of a high population in a very restrictive footprint on this hilltop plateau.

Lovely place to wonder around full of character and interest. Reminds me a bit of some of the back streets in Verona. Have a good week and stay safe Herb.

Hi Maurice. It was great to walk around -especially with a camera round your neck. These Italian towns and villages have such a charming look. I remember going through Verona on a coach to Lake Garda but I wanted to see mainly the Opera in the stadium there -but never did!

Enjoy this wet week. Herb
