  • Absolutely amazing Etruscan tombs! There are different types of tombs from different periods of Etruscan history. The written explanations aren't very detailed, so it's worth getting a guide to really understand what you're seeing. You can get there from Rome by taking the train to Ladispoli-Cerveteri, then there's a bus to the necropolis.
  • Fascinating, thought-provoking and peaceful place. Very enjoyable visit. A 10 euro ticket admits you to the museum as well as the necropolis, which is a great deal. Be advised that they only take cash.
