Necropoli etrusca (Etruscan necropolis)

Recommended
Up on a deserted plateau, the necropolis occupies a site parallel to that of the former city. No architecture is visible outside... But down in the funerary chambers, on the walls, there is an extraordinary ensemble of paintings: the tomb of the Baron, of the Leopards, the tomb of the Bulls (decorated with erotic pictures), the tomb of the Lions, the Hunt and the tomb of Fishing are the most remarkable in the ensemble...but very often many of the tombs are closed.
