As others have said, plenty of parking space- including provision for camper vans. A little walk to reach the tombs. Apart from walking through and viewing the tomb with its chambers there is not much else to see.

Interesting history regarding the Etruscans. Tombs are open and do not contain anything but still interesting to visit.

Passing through Castellina we stumbled upon the Etruscan tombs. Short uphill walk from car park. Wouldn't go out of my way but good to see. Made us Google the history. 15 mins light switch wasn't quite enough!

The turn off for the tomb is not well signed and the parking area is limited. It's worth a brief stop to see the burial rooms.

We were in Castellini in Chianti, one of our favorite places in Tuscany, and we asked a local about nearby attractions. The ancient Etruscan Tomb was within walking distance, and since there is no place to park, that is the only way to get there....More

4 amazing Etruscan tombs - this is a must see. We would have driven right past these, however our guide recommended. Great condition - don't forget to hit the button for the light switch on the way up the hill!
