after the one in Rome, this is the best museum of Etruscan civilization. It's a good start before visiting the local necropolis. it's open 5 days a week, closed on monday. more »
This medieval town has been revived and now boasts accommodations, restaurants and shops. Be sure to check out the amazing views from the east wall. Well worth the visit.
I loved this small quiet museum full of ancient treasures. The expositions are unic, especially well preserved Etruscan tombs. I was impressed by collection of ceramics . There are not so many tourists there so you can fully enjoy the atmosphere of history and make interesting photos. I did some with my travel doll and local staff was helpful and friendly
