Very pleasant walk in the park among the ancient etruscan places of burial. A must for history and nature lovers

This was enjoyable but sometimes hilly. The explanations with the voice over were quite helpful. The various tombs were quite informative, descriptive and interestingly placed.

We have been here under a local friend suggestion. The place covers 2 old castles, 1 old church and more than 1 hundred of caves in the tufo. Some of them were inhabited until the end of XVIII century. It is interesting to go around these remains

The Etruscans lived in the area since the 9th century B.C. They were a very mysterious people and even today, many of their sacred sites remain unexplained. One of them is the cave roads, strange pathways carved 20-30 meters deep into the volcanic tuff rock. No one knows the purpose of these roads as some are parallel to each other... More
