Historic Walking Area Tourist Spot
See the ancient Etruscan burial sites at Necropoli di Cerveteri, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Take a look inside nine unearthed burial mounds from the 6th century BCE, carved by hand out of volcanic tufa stone. Descend the narrow stone step passageways to step inside the mounds, which are built as replicas of the Etruscans’ own houses. Watch a film about Etruscan history projected on the inside of three tombs, which explains the construction and rituals of the tombs built for different sizes and classes of families.
