If you are into Etruscan artifacts and history of their culture this is a must see stop for folks. About 2 hours+ North of Rome, this small town houses a superb museum on Etruscans and their life styles. This is presented in the usual museum format on several floors of a very old villa at the beginning of town. parking across the street is plentiful under the trees, and inexpensive. The musem has a great gift shop with friendly staff. The museum is open for you to just wander from floor to floor looking at sarcophagi, vases, jewelry and other tomb artifacts. The highlights of the musem are the winged horses from a local temple, removed and placed for viewing on the top floor. While there, the must see is a number, I believe it was 3 painted tombs that have had their paintings removed and recreated within temperature controlled rooms to mimic the actual tomb sites, truely amazing. When you buy your tickets the tomb viewing is an extra, but small fee, so add it to your ticket price for the viewing in rooms on the top floor.
I have to say I had a wonderful day viewing these artifacts truely an amazing culture.
