  • The graves are large, well-preserved and there are many. There is great light show from the cafeteria and audio files a few places you can activate. Can clear is recommended if you are on the edges.

  • Incredible city of the dead entirely excavated in the Tuff. You can have 20 hectares compared with 400 count! Explanation of uses and customs of the Etruscans. Turns with ease even in summer, thanks to the shade of the plants! The explanations are very satisfactory for children studying the subject! One of a kind, to visit at least once in your life!

  • The site is great, we thought you visit in maybe two hours instead of every corner is a new discovery, of course for those who are curious! The points equipped for multimedia explanations accompanied by staff unfortunately are just two, I would have liked a little more because they are truly useful and effective. However there are also places where you can have a standalone audio explanation through the remote controls provided for free. Too bad that one of the main tombs were closed, I think for maintenance. Overall a really interesting site, nice and well maintained. Even the dining structure helps.
