  • This was one of our favorite sites visited. Less well tended than Tarquinia, but more interesting to visit due to the various forms of the tombs and the fact you can walk into them.  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
  • Amazing Necropoli with many old Etruscan influences. Really good price. This is something you have to see when you visit Cerveteri. A little bus is going from the town to the Necropoli for free. After that, visit the museum too.
  • As an American, I've never heard of this place. It was an incredible experience. On the August day we went, we only saw four or five couples walking around the acres of tombs.
  • We were there 5years ago (pre-smartphone!) and were overwhelmed with the beauty, history and culture we could soak up. Serene, shady roads, exquisite art inside the tombs. There WAS a small food service inside the necropolis back then. Make the effort to get there... you will be amazed.
