You can't believe it until you see it. After you see this, you will have to rethink the world - we are just one more civilization in what has been many advanced civilizations populating the Earth for millennia.

I am fascinated with the Etruscan culture so this was a thrilling sight. While there are about 6000 tombs at the necropoli, just a small percent are elaborately decorated and of these, even fewer are open on a rotating basis. As others have mentioned, it is not the easiest of visits. Descending from bright sunlight into a dimly lighted stairway... More

First - the view northward from the top of the site across the rolling countryside is just stunning. The 'tombs' themselves are really worth seeing - some are more decorative than others but see as many as you can. You do need to go down and up a flight of stairs to view each one so not for anyone with... More

This archeological park is an absolute world collection and I believe is recognised as such by UNESCO. The 65 tombs are not all opened at anyone time but what we saw was breath taking. The park is about a kilometre out of town along the ridge line so it's an easy walk in fine weather. The views from the park... More

The tombs according to the Etruscan tradition was built on two levels, down went the sarcophagi of the deceased, while the upper room was used as a banquet hall to remember the... More

This place is truly amazing, it's hard for elderly, lots of stairs and walking. It's incredible what those cambers hold. It's a must to see.

Drove out to this site, after leaving Viterbo, on our way back to Rome. We chose this way, because we wanted to have lunch by the ocean and thought we could stop here for a Etruscan education. The setting is lovely with rolling hills, that look out to the valley in one direction and the ocean in the other. The... More

This was a very interesting historical site a bit off the beaten path about 2 hours north of Rome. There are several well preserved Etruscan tombs that are accessed by descending wooden stairs that end at a window at the entrance to the tomb. The colorful frescoes are beautiful and can be seen fairly well although because of the need... More

What an interesting place. There are many burial mounds and you can actually descent into a good half dozen of them. It is quite fascinating to think that the wall paintings have lasted for so very long. I am so pleased that Italy takes restoration so seriously.

I visited this site around 15 years ago and have wanted to return. I didn't expect to have a teenager in tow and he found them interesting too! There have been improvements to the paths around the site and addition of a small visitor centre with spotless toilets, and cafe. The tombs were as I remebered them. Fabulous. To think... More
