We drove out to Sutri to see the living Nativity that was to take place in the park called Antichissima Citta di Sutri. These are actual caves and they were supposed to have created the living Nativity there complete with everyone in costume. Unfortunately, the weather had turned very cold and the play was cancelled. We were so disappointed. The... More

Along with the caves there is also historical reminders of a bygone age. A small amphitheatre and plenty of information to give you an insight int the Etruscan culture..

For just €5 (parking free at Amfiteatro) you can first of all see the amazing amphitheatre which was carved out of solid rock, and is a wonder to behold, then you can go on to seen the ancient tombs and troglodyte dwellings hewn from the rock, but the "piece-de-resistance" is the fantastic cave chrch with it amazing paintings and solid...

My seven year old thought the amphitheatre was the best! The Church and tombs were really interesting too and the guide was helpful. Very good value for money and well worth a visit. It was incredibly quiet during our visit.

Our family enjoyed a tranquil walk around the ruins and cave-like spaces on the outskirts of Sutri. Wildflowers grow around the rocky entrances to these ancient ruins.

The caves are unbelievable. And to think they are 2800 years BC. We hiked ancient trails and saw the most beautiful rolling hills, vineyards and villages. Everything is carved out of the tufa stone which is soft. These were carved during pre roman times and middle ages. We walked along the ancient PILGRIMS way. the Via Francigena. There are some...

Sutri is quite an unassuming place, but well worth a visit. There is a beautiful archaeological park to walk through with gardens and a lovely church and villa, the latter two which are unfortunately not open to view. You get a bird's eye view of a well preserved amphitheatre, which you can also enter on your descent. There is a... More

There are many abandoned Etruscan tombs next to the Etrusco-Roman amphitheatre, which though eroded retains its shape and is used for summer performances but the public sits on chairs in the middle. nearby, there is a Mitraic altar absorbed into an early medieval church but, though we tried several times to see it, never succeeded - the opening hours are...

About an hour from Rome, this is a fantastic place to visit. The necropolis is very interesting and the amphitheatre is remarkable. Very nice to get out of the hustle and bustle of Rome. Nice break from the city!

A quiet unassuming place to visit. The visitor board provides some history but wikipedia give would you more. A 1st century ruin that is well preserved. Grass was slightly damped on day of visit but still an amazing experience to sit in the middle of the amphitheatre and imagine what used to go on.
