 Itinerary description

The Etruscan necropolis at Cerveteri is a uniquely unforgettable archaeological site. Built by this prosperous enigmatic people between the seventh and the third centuries B.C., the 'city of dead' is still not completely excavated, but there are a remarkable amount of stone tombs along little streets, and you can easily spend several hours exploring them.Cerveteri - Necropolis - Tombs

      The Etruscans built cities and ports that unfortunately have long since disappeared, but the care and industry they put into the homes for their dead has resulted in a long-lasting monument. The experience of clambering inside these tombs is unique and a little frightening. It's also rather spine-chilling and feels faintly invasive. One hopes that there are no curses to blight the adventurous tourist for profaning.

The archaeological necropolis, a short distance outside the small town of Cerveteri, is huge. The major tombs are signposted, have steps for access and lights for illumination, but the majority of interiors are accessible only to the fearless. There are distinct types and ages of tombs. The majority contain stone carved beds and pillows; some also provide what seem to be stone chairs and furniture. There are round tombs, square tombs, luxurious tomb developments, streets of terraced tombs. Most tombs are bare inside; although some colored painted objects and figures are visible in some of them. The Tomba dei Rilievi contains appealing painted reliefs of tools and weapons like if they had been hanged in the walls.Cerveteri - Necropolis - Tomb of Chairs

The museum in Cerveteri is worth a look. It's in an old castle on the charming central piazza. Here you can admire Etruscan art and artifacts found locally, including the contents of some of the tombs.

After the visit you may stroll around pleasant streets with shops and eateries in the old town of Cerveteri on top of the hill.
