We visited on a Wednesday in early August and it was almost completely empty of other people. A few of the tombs are lit up, but most are dark and sort of eerie (which added to the effect and make it really interesting for my...More

We were not impressed with this stop on our tour from our cruise to Rome. You are given a small radio that only works in a few of the tombs. For the rest, they all look alike without any signs really explaining what you are...More

If you ponder what to do in Cerveteri, visit the Etruscan Necropoli. Entrance fee is €8 for adults and €2 for kids. The area of Etruscan tombs is quite vast, so don’t climb in to the first tomb and take pictures because there will be...More

I was gob-smacked by the scale of this site. It's huge. The 'burial mounds' were carved out of stone and some of them are 12 feet high and 30-40 feet in diameter. Truly remarkable what these folks accomplished in 800-400BC. I'm told this is only...More

As with most travellers a visit to the Etruscan Necropolis was our reason for visiting Cerveteri, and we were not disappointed. It is a beautiful place and demonstrates the considerable skills that existed many centuries BC.

What a place to visit. If you were so inclined you could spend a week there. The cafe looks very nice and make sure you watch the video in the room next to the cafe. Very tranquil/peaceful setting.

The ‘City of the Dead’ is truly amazing for both its history and the sight it offers. It’s in the city of Cerveteri, a bit far from Rome which means you either book a ride or head by subway. It will take you about an...More

Cerveteri is a series of ancient Etruscan tombs and unlike anything else I've ever seen. D.H. Lawrence, in his chapter on these tombs wrote "It is so still and pleasant and cheerful. The place is so soothing." I agree. My wife and I were captivated...More

This was a unique experience for me. I'm not big on cemetaries, burial geounds, and mausoleums. But this place caught my fancy. My kids enjoyed it too. It was a good opportunity to give them some history lessons. If you are nearby, in Rome or...More

Hi. From the Cereteri station you'll find some bus for the necropolis. This is the cheapest way but the most complicated. Ask for a taxi in the station, is the easiest. Franco
