|Famous clock tower, Volterra|
Some of my friends do not like New Moon, the second book in Twilight series. The story is too slow. Also, they dislike the movie as Edward does not appear a lot.
|Volterra - lovely scenery|
I like this book as if I could feel Bella’s emptiness when she emotionally suffered being left by Edward... I remember the scene of her facing the window with blank eyes and the season changes from autumn, winter, another season and season.... In the name of love, she did whatever she could by rushing to save him in Volterra the home of the Volturi.

Depending on the schedule, the local tourist office has Twilight Tour for visitors! This office is also a souvenir shop selling posters of magnificent Volterra landscapes/sites, and also Twilight souvenir such as the red apple as seen in book cover.
|Clock tower and beautiful building in the surrounding|
We chatted with the tourist officer. The clock tower in the movie is real. However, the movie was shot somewhere else. The tower looks solid, strong and masculin...

The building underneath the tower seems to be a small museum or gallery exhibiting many symbols.

When the sun was up, there seemed to be a gathering (or exhibition?) of Fiat car owners in front of the tower.
In the opposite, a group of gentlemen performed some a cappella songs to the public.

Other than the clock tower, there are other interesting ancient sites; a Duomo (church) and the ruins of the Roman theatre which was built in 10 B.C.
