  • This is our 5th stay in Tuscany and we are expanding the scope of our visits. We have visited the San Cerbone necropolis, but will definitely come back during your next trip to visit other parts of the site. Under the hot summer, the shady bar allowed us to freshen, before and after the visit. The kids enjoyed the plain mini games. A guide - included in the entry - ticket took us inside the tomb of the Curry (impressive) and shared a lot of knowledge on the Etruscans. Remember to bring a swimsuit to enjoy the beach after visiting the Etruscan site.

  • nice visit to a charming place. I highly recommend the tours (free) catered for by archaeologists who dig daily

  • In the itineraries of our Tuscan holiday, we were looking for traces of history. Etruscan presences abound around here before, and the Romans then ... the Acropolis for us was a pleasant surprise: an evening event carefully prepared, allowed us to learn about the history of the alternation of the two peoples in these areas. Through the voice and stage presence of two actresses brave and witty, in over an hour of "show", that is the most interesting dialogues and visits to the Acropolis, we entered the daily life of the Etruscans and Rome in 2nd century BC. To see the story you learn as well!

  • Something unique from nearly 3000 years ago. The guided tour allows you to enter the ancient tombs. Wow!
  • Populonia is the most known etruscan town close to the sea. It was a port. Here you can visit the tombs, near the beach and into the wood, and the acropolis, on the top of the hill. It is a good option to visit the museum during a break from day spent at the beach of Baratti.
  • Interesting park and very close to a beach
  • Such a great place to see when visiting Tuscany. Surrounded by the nature of the promontory of Populonia and the beach of the Gulf of Baratti, the archaeological park well preserves the ruins or the Etruscans, the ancient inhabitants of Tuscany.
  • A very special place! Take enough time to visit it.
