Overview
More
The Civic Archaeological Museum of Vetulonia describes the history of the territory hosting, according to a chronological-topographical order, finds from the remains of the inhabited area and the necropolis of Vetulonia, but also from the territorial area controlled by it. In the seven rooms of the museum are preserved the testimony of more than a thousand years of history of one of the capitals of the Etruscan world, from the Villanovan period to the Roman period. Extraordinary funerary objects from the orientalizing period (720 - 600 BC) , especially due to the presence of locally produced gold jewelery, testify the power and the richness of the etruscan aristocracy that has ruled the city and the territory.

a little museum with a good overview over the Etruscan places of the area, with changing special exibitions. In summer too hot.The museum is in Vetulonia, one of the impotant places of the Etruscan time near the sea (it had a port!).

With an outstanding, enthusiastic team of young archeologists, this museum revitalizes the cultural life surrounding Vetulonia and Castiglione della Pescaia. During summer time, many cultural events are worth the detour : kid's activities (cooking etruscan, etc.), conferences for adults and many more.

A dive in the past, in the Etruscan time... And the exceptionnal opportunity of participating in the archeological research (prior subscription at the City Hall). You can also take the kids with you in the excavations.
