Volterra villas - quality accommodations and a bit of mystery
Volterra, an ancient Etruscan municipality, resides high on a hill in Tuscany
and is distinctive for its original city gate, which was built with massive
volcanic stones in the 4th century BC. Do you have a son or daughter who likes
to read vampire fiction? Do you have a fascination with the supernatural or are
you intrigued by sinister tales of mystery and betrayal?
Renting a Volterra villa
will satisfy your artistic, gastronomic, and historical
passions, and it will undoubtedly quench your thirst for fantastical narrative
lore. Volterra is an important location in the bestselling novel New Moon
tale of vampire love and loss by Stephanie Meyer. While your teenagers will be
"dying" to visit the timeless locations made famous by this book series, you may
be more shocked by the city's mention in Thomas Harris's novel Hannibal
your imagination run wild in the streets of Volterra, and make sure to escape
back to your Volterra villa before the vampires and spooks come out!
While Volterra is enjoying a dark cultural rejuvenation today, it has long been
renowned for its fascination with death and magic. Have a bit of fun and visit
the Etruscan funeral urns dating back to Archaic periods at the Guarnacci
Etruscan Museum, while envisioning the generations of people who have walked
this cobblestones just like you are today. Don't let your energy get "sucked"
out of you as you admire the sculptures in the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta,
and be sure to treat yourself to a cocktail in the Piazza dei Priori, which is
thought to be one of Italy's most beautiful squares. With a Volterra villa, you
are living a part of history that still holds many unsolved mysteries. If you
piece them together, you just may get inspired to write a novel of your own!
