When visiting the cathedral and cathedral museum, visiting these Etruscan and Roman water works is well worth the effort. Our guide was adequately fluent in English and did a fine job of explaining the labyrinth. However, if one is claustrophobic, you may wish to consider not visiting and several areas are narrow and close.

actually I often go and bring visiting friends, and everyone, especially children, love the underground Roman and Etruscan tunnels and the ancient cistern. Wonderfully cool, too, on a hot summer day!

The church and museum itself are not that special. There is some mosaic from the neo-christian time in the church and some nice mauscripts in the museum but thats pretty much it. The main attraction is the Labyrith of Porsenna that is a series of water reservoir tunnels and a cistern that criss cross beneth the chruch and the square.

From the tunnels you also get to climb to the bell tower.

Be sure to visit this underground labyrinth, which is really a cistern and aqueduct system. Note that an English guide might not be available unless requested in advance. We arrived about noon and were able to make the last visit of the day. The Italian guide spoke slowly and clearly in a way that I could grasp the gist of what she said and explain to my family. Walking through the tunnels is fun, especially for kids, even if you don't grasp every engineering detail.

You have to take a guided tour to see the tunnels, but it's worth taking the time to see them. When we first arrived we missed a tour by 10 minutes and were told to come back at the next tour time. We were led by a very informative young woman who spoke good English. She explained how and why the tunnels were dug and answered all our questions. Afterwards we climbed the bell tower for some fantastic views. The climb was easy as the steps are shallow. Well worth the extra 2 euro charge. The whole visit lasted about 45 minutes.

Not really a labyrinth but an ancient aquaduct system dating back to the Etruscans and the Romans, it only takes maybe 15 minutes to see, but the tour ends with a climb up the town tower that has amazing views. Worth the 5 euro entrance fee.

This is pretty cool. A inexpensive attraction that is very different. And you get access to the church museum as well. You will be going underground and in very narrow space where there bats. There is not that much to actually see but the experience is a lot of fun. Most of our tour was in Italian but the guide made a great effort to include us and provide some information. They provide a write up in English to assist understanding the site. If in Chiusi worth a visit.

At first glance upon entering Chiusi, you would never guess this local hamlet had a labyrinth-shaped catacomb and museum worthy of a visit. Wonderful people in town, as well... please make sure to great folks with a "buongiorno" or "buonasera" out of respect, and I'm sure you will be greeted in kind with a smile. :-) Also, make sure to visit the local parks... especially those on the outer edge behind the Etruscan Museum, for an awesome view of Tuscany.

The "Labyrinth of Porsenna", is a series of tunnels under the town, built in the 6th-5th century BC and probably utilized in Etruscan-Roman times for drainage of rain waters. According to Pliny the Elder , the Labyrinth was part of a monument including the sepulchre of the King Porsenna . It is well worth the guided English underground tour.
