Necropoli dei Monterozzi
This Etruscan necropolis contains about 6,000 tombs from as far back as 7th century BC, and about 200 tombs were originally decorated with beautiful frescoes, a vibrant pictorial depiction of the life of these ancient Etruscans. Today, about a dozen of these remarkable tombs are open at a time in an effort to preserve them. As you descend a flight of stairs to each underground tomb, you will step back in time and into the extraordinary world of the ancient Etruscans as they reveal through their paintings their daily life activities, special ceremonies, banquets, mythologies, and artistic abilities.

Church of San Pietro
One legend attributes Tuscania’s foundation to the son of Aeneas, a Trojan hero of Greco-Roman mythology and another legend tells us that Tuscania was founded by Tusco, the son of Hercules and Araxes. No matter who founded Tuscania, by 7th -6th century BC, it played a significant role in ancient Etruria as it became a center for maritime trade. The Tuscania we see today is the product of the medieval era with fortified walls and towers, but its deep Etruscan roots are evident in the many ancient necropolis and artifacts have also been discovered here. The monument church of Saint Peter is worth a visit. It dates back to the 8th century, with renovations taking place in 11th-12 centuries. Not to be missed is Parco Torre di Lavello with a breathtaking panoramic view of the majestic landscape that inspired poets.
