An interesting visit to the mines. Visited with children of 2 of 4. That's about the youngest they should be for this. Our visit started with a guided tour about 30 minutes through a mine. In Italian of course. You can borrow an audio guide but it is of course not the same. Then walked up the hill for 10... More

this tip I found thanks to tripadvisor. One is the place where it joins prochazka with knowledge of the places that dealt with the mining of copper and lead ore and many other minerals. Leave the car in the parking lot, head to the info center which is the exhibition of minerals, forward a ticket to the inputs of a... More

We enjoyed this day since it was an inside event and the day was rainy. They offered English audio for us to follow along. Very interesting. We didn't but the ticket for the train. Wish we would have thou. A must see!

As others have mentioned the narration during the train ride is in Italian. What makes this worst is that on the journey up the hill it stops suddenly and all the lights go out. With my broken Italian I managed to understand this is just part of the tour but for children this could be terrifying, I understand when it... More

Carla C, Responsabile Marketing at Il Parco Archeominerario di San Silvestro, responded to this review

Dear Sir, first of all we regret that you didn’t enjoy the visit in our archeological mines park. I saw that you visited only a part of this park, the Lanzi-Temperino tunnel. The tour is developed on a train that runs in a real mining tunnel, used in the last Century to extract and to transport the ores. During the... More

I visited this place yesterday with my three grandchildren and my daughter Firstly the lady who sold us tickets was very rude and was raising her eyebrows when I was trying to speak Italian. Secondly we were handed an English version of the spoken guide of the mine but since inside it is pitch dark it is impossible to read.... More

The archaeological park at San Silvestro is definitely worthwhile; the visit consists of three parts, 1) a walk through a closed mine dating from the Etruscan era, which was utilized up until the 1970's (they have English audio guides); 2) a train ride ("train" meaning a 2 mph drive) through same mine, showing various techniques used during the Etruscan, Medieval...
