Volterra 2

Every town has its dark side, and Volterra seems to be some
sort of center for Mormon vampirism; but the locals seem
to be taking it good-naturedly

And the old Medici fortress has been converted to a small
prison, holding forty-some elite Mafia prisoners (we read)

The views are nice though

Ruins of Roman amphitheatre, baths, forum, et cetera

Etruscan Gate; what, your town doesn't have an
Etruscan Gate?!

Alabaster is very big here; has been for
a couple millennia; an artisan's

The Fonti di Docciola, which opened onto...

The (free) camper-stop
