We were staying in Orvieto for a few days and decided to stop at the necropolis before making our way up. We wandered up to the ticket booth, which was closed (it was around noon), however someone came out from the museum and let us...More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this necropolis. It has a little very well-kept museum included in the entrance ticket. The area is overgrown with vegetation but it makes it all the more enjoyable and gives it a mysterious feel. Very worthwhile a visit especially...More

This site was a "must" for me being fascinated by the Etruscans. It didn't disappoint. The entry charges were very reasonable, and the little museum helpful in setting the scene; available explanations also in English. Then we were free to wander round the site. It...More

My family spent about 2 1/2 days in Orvieto recently, sightseeing as well as relaxing. We noticed mention of what appeared to be a lesser sight for the town on a map, and since I am fascinated by all necropolis, cemeteries, and ruins, and since...More

I walked around the outside walls of Orvieto and this is one of two necropolis' that I discovered. It cost €3 to see the small information center (with information in English) and to access the necropolis. You can actually enter into the tombs and look...More
