Sites you’ll visit

  • Necropolis of Cerveteri
  • Town of Ceri
  • This vast site that is classed as an UNESCO world heritage site is home to burials as old as the Villanovan period, during the 9th century BC, and include also tombs of the Etruscan period, 3rd century BC. The large area is roughly 400 hectares with thousands of tombs, of which only a small section is visible to public.
  • Going north from Rome, you will find the Etruscan village of Ceri. Inhabited prior to the 7th century B.c, the town’s native population changed several times, from Etruscans to Romans. Numerous tombs from the Etruscan and Roman periods can be found in the area. The town as it looks today was founded in 1236, when the inhabitants of its neighbor Caere abandoned their land to be better protected by rock formations. Since the 14th century, properties in Ceri were owned by some of the greatest Italian families, ending with the Torlonia.
