Necropoli della Banditaccia reviews
A jump in the past! it is very well kept, and very large, you can spend hours looking and taking pictures of this fascinating site! more »
This place is well worth the effort to get to, and combined with a walk around Cerveteri town and museum, makes for a suberb day. The tombs are astonishingly large, grand and beautifully-built. Great.... more »
Very nice. But difficult to find and get to. Possibly best to hire a car in either Rome or Fiumicino. Large area so you might need to spend 2-4 Hours there. Also necessary to read up on the site before a visit
Great site using sound and light to explain the burials and shows paintings on the walls using virtual reality. The tumuli are huge and give an Indiana Jones atmosphere
