Necropoli etrusca (Etruscan necropolis)
Up on a deserted plateau, the necropolis occupies a site parallel to that of the former city. No architectural detail is visible from the outside... It is however 5km long and nearly 1km wide and home to some 6,000 tombs (6-1C BC), 17 of which are open to the public. The vivid, colourful paintings on the walls of the funerary chambers provide a fascinating insight into the Etruscan civilisation. The necropolis is a Unesco World Heritage Site.
