We really enjoyed our walk through Volterra learning about the local history and sites around the city. The walk is structured in such a way that you do not have to walk up any steep hills (which are common in the area).

The tour takes you in 1 hour (+15 minutes) through the city center along the main highlights. Claudia told us a lot of interesting stories about the history of Volterra and all the monuments. She's very passionate and entertaining, also for children. Highly recommended!
