A less visited site with amazing tombs and an ancient place of worship pre- dating Christianity, but later becoming a church. Do pay the extra to go in!

This is a fascinating place for fans of history and all things ancient. The coliseum here is much smaller than what Rome has to offer, but it is unique because it is entirely carved into the natural stone in the Etruscan tradition. You can walk along the cool dark corridor that circumnavigates the space, and let your imagination run rampant as to what it might have been like thousands of years ago. There’s also a spot where you can climb up designated steps and look down the large open grass space and get a sense of the perspective audience members had.

Nearby there is the Necropolis - Etruscan tombs carved into the rock face, with small shelves that once held urns. Some of the tombs still have aesthetic detail visible. If you’ve got good shoes on there’s a trail you can explore and see even more tombs, which are far more atmospheric with the trees and shrubs growing thickly around them.

My husband and I were staying about 30 minutes away and had a car. We were delighted to see this ancient area. We parked on the street by the park but later found the car park just past that. We easily saw the areas we wanted to see in about thirty plus minutes. They may not be the best of this type of site but it was enough for us as it was close. There was not a lot of people there eventhough we were there in early September. We really enjoyed seeing it all, especially the ampitheater!

It's a little unfair to compare a Sutri. with a Matera, somewhat akin to stacking Genoa against Rome. It's apples vs oranges, or more suitably a pinapple vs plum. The regional park here is disarmingly pleasant and equally captivating.

One mustn't forget it's the smallest of its kind aka national park of 7 hectares, yet serves as a poignant introduction to a much-layered culture in many ways rivaling Roman accomplishments.

The town itself including among other fine options an amphitheater, necropolis and cathedral are fully deserving of the relatively rare (and much sought after) national "Orange" certification for an outstanding setting to visit.

We reached the town's main attraction: a tufaceous hill which used to be an ancient Etruscan city. Here we paid the price to enter the archaeological area which featured the most amazing Roman amphitheater i had ever seen after the one in Rome. This one was however completely different and wholly built inside the rock. Next to it, the hill was surrounded by Etruscan and roman tombs built inside the rock and finally we also visited an ancient mithraeum, or temple dedicated to the god Mithras, which was later converted to church during the medieval times and still featured frescoes representing pilgrims on the via Francigena.

Interesting, but I would say the caves in Matera are more interesting and better preserved. Still cool to walk past.

"Superbe" I recommend a visit to Sutri.
You will discover an ancient culture, the Etruscan tombs, amphitheater, mitral, downtown area.
Do not miss this important site if you are in the area, it is close to Rome

Agree with everything written, just wanted to correct an earlier review - you can get here from Rome by bus (Cotral) which drops right outside.

Great necropolis, amazing to think that man carved tombs into the solid rock. Lots of musical nights in the amphitheatre from Pink Floyd to Opera. Walking through the nature walk you feel transported back in time. Would recommend.

An assortment of ancient wonders here. A necropolis, and amphitheatre and a Middle Ages church with many fresco. You will need an appointment to be let into the church. There is a shop and cafe opposite where you can use the loo. This will probably take you about 1.5 hours to do all three sites which are next to each other. Get a guide book!
