We enjoyed a wonderful guided tour of the necropolis at Baratti. Our guide was friendly, well informed and very helpful. I can wholeheartedly recommend a visit! There is plenty to see and several options depending on the time you have available.

I had the fortunate opportunity to be guided by two archeologists who are specialized in the Etruscan culture and history. I was enamored by the size of the some of the tumuli and the frequency of the tombs carved into the hillsides. The Etruscans are...More

Driving there took over 90 minutes oneway on medium quality roads. Once we arrived, we were quite disappointed. While there are several sites combined, we mainly came for the Etruscan graves, of which there is few left. I recommend to better visit Cerverteri, which offers...More
