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 where built mostly in wood and often destroyed by the Romans, therefore the only clues we have about their society is through their tombs, decorated with scenes of their daily life. The atmosphere is unreal, the stillness and silence are almost scary among the 2000 “tumulus” (burial mounds), you feel lost in time and acknowledge an important background of the ancient Roman history.
