The Etruscan town of Caere is still a fascinating borgo boasting one of the most famous and charming necropolis of the ancient world.
A UNESCO archeological complex just 35 km away from Rome, the necropolis of Cerveteri is one of the most interesting sites of the Etruscan civilisation. Etruscan cities were built mostly in wood and were often destroyed by the Romans. Therefore the only clues we have about their society is through their tombs, which are decorated with scenes of their daily lives. The atmosphere is surreal. The stillness and silence are almost scary amongst the 2000 “tumulus” (burial mounds). You will feel lost in time and discover the important background of ancient Roman history.
