  • The Etruscan history is a very interesting topic for those who are interested in the times of the Roman Empire. Here, many artifacts are exhibited, unfortunately often without thematic structure and English explanations. Everything seems haphazardly collected and stuffed. The entrance area with cash and shop points to the problems. Employees also have a rather listless. The Villa is sure a nice frame and their architecture allows a logical tour. But also here the ravages of time. Would be nice if were invested here in the next few years and newly cured.

  • A really rich history and Museum exhibits related to the Etruscans and beyond. Shame about some areas leave some out of use. Deserves a lot more and definitely worth a visit!

  • One of my favorite museum experiences so far in Italy. I knew little about the Etruscan's before spending a couple of hours. I highly recommend the audio tour.
  • This museum is a gem! Great glimpse of the ancients of the ancients.
  • I advise to read about some of the history about it, get a good guide, it's fascinating, this small museum, rich and full of history stories
  • It would have been better if it had more than just pots. Pretty much a pot museum
  • It is not an Italien history. Much photos it is good that there is a lot of English.
