Volterra’s narrow streets will host old shops, like blacksmiths or carpenters, and you’ll have the unique chance to taste medieval specialities, such as the spicy wine or the lemon and honey drink.

All the city’s inhabitants are going to wear Medieval dresses and to drive people into the party throughout the streets and squares: that’ll be surely surprising and extremely fun for kids!
