Volterragusto (Truffle market in Volterra), from October 24 to November 1st
At Volterragusto you can taste and buy not only local white truffles, but also wine, oil, meats, cheeses and crafts. A very interesting cheese rolling race called the Palio dei Caci Volterrani is held beyond the market, where contestants will attempt to tumble a wheel of cheese down the slope of a street in the shortest amount of time possible.
