Via della Necropoli 43/45, 00052, Cerveteri, Italy
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

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
