"New Moon" a boon for Volterra tourism

In New Moon, the popular vampire film based on the book by Stephanie Meyer, the young couple journeys to city of Volterra, Italy for a meeting with an ancient vampire clan. Now devotees of the books and films are flocking to the medieval Tuscan town's square.

For its part, Volterra knows a good thing when it sees one and has created a series of tourist packages, including a re-enactment of a key movie scene, romantic weekends, and a walking tour called "Hot on the Trail of Edward and Bella."
