“solid rock”(2 reviews)
This lovely and relatively undiscovered Etruscan archeological site is just an hour from the Eternal City, which features an impressive amphitheatre, completely carved out of local tufa stone.

Interesting, but I would say the caves in Matera are more interesting and better preserved. Still cool to walk past.

"Superbe" I recommend a visit to Sutri. You will discover an ancient culture, the Etruscan tombs, amphitheater, mitral, downtown area. Do not miss this important site if you are in the area, it is close to Rome

Agree with everything written, just wanted to correct an earlier review - you can get here from Rome by bus (Cotral) which drops right outside.

Great necropolis, amazing to think that man carved tombs into the solid rock. Lots of musical nights in the amphitheatre from Pink Floyd to Opera. Walking through the nature walk you feel transported back in time. Would recommend.
