The "Labyrinth of Porsenna", is a series of tunnels under the town, built in the 6th-5th century BC and probably utilized in Etruscan-Roman times for drainage of rain waters. According to Pliny the Elder , the Labyrinth was part of a monument including the sepulchre of the King Porsenna . It is well worth the guided English underground tour.

The church and museum itself are not that special. There is some mosaic from the neo-christian time in the church and some nice mauscripts in the museum but thats pretty much it. The main attraction is the Labyrith of Porsenna that is a series of water reservoir tunnels and a cistern that criss cross beneth the chruch and the square.

From the tunnels you also get to climb to the bell tower.

Be sure to visit this underground labyrinth, which is really a cistern and aqueduct system. Note that an English guide might not be available unless requested in advance. We arrived about noon and were able to make the last visit of the day. The Italian guide spoke slowly and clearly in a way that I could grasp the gist of what she said and explain to my family. Walking through the tunnels is fun, especially for kids, even if you don't grasp every engineering detail.

actually I often go and bring visiting friends, and everyone, especially children, love the underground Roman and Etruscan tunnels and the ancient cistern. Wonderfully cool, too, on a hot summer day!
