CERVETERI - ETRUSCAN NECROPOLIS - with - EXTENTION TO THE MUSEUM
The tour can begin from Rome or directly from Cerveteri. Departing from Rome, going along the Via Aurelia and the highway, we arrive in the valley of Cerveteri where about 2000 Etruscan tombs among the most famous in the world can be found. We enter the necropolis where we find the most important typologies of tombs from the IX to the II century B.C. In the Villanoviano period cremation was quite usual and ashes were put into biconocal urns inside tombs called " pozzetto". Belonging to a following period, we find monumental tombs, called tumuli whose hypogeums are elegantely decorated The visit can be continued to the National Museum "Cerite" to have a more complete idea about the Etruscan civilization.
