Even if you don't take the time to walk to these from the town centre, stop on your way out of the town to view them. We didn't appreciate that we could actually get up close and go inside some of the tombs. You can see the lettering above the tombs clearly and there are many to see. It was a really amazing piece of history we thought we spend about 20 mins going around it but 90 mins later we left! Im sure kids would love to go and explore the different little streets and tombs.

All information posted is in Italian and English. In the little museum at the entrance, some of the English versions are on the back of the display walls, but they are there. There is also a lot of information posted at the ruins.

There are two areas of ruins (maybe a third but we didn’t go looking). At least one area is fully open to tourists—even right into the various crypts. We went just before closing (you need to pay for entry but it’s nominal). My kids were pretty fascinated by the ability to walk INTO the tombs. And seeing the old Etruscan writing was a thrill for mom.

Incredible ancient site. We are so lucky that this site is open to visitors. It's wonderful to learn about the ancient Etruscans that lived in Orvieto in the past.

13. 9. 2018 They are interested in us these sights. For us a beautiful, mysterious experience. The site is relatively well maintained. I recommend. Doporučuji návštěvu města Orvieta (patří k Orvietu) a všech památek tam, obecně. More youtube travel itinerary video PSISvisit.

This Etruscan Necropolis is a short walk down the hill. We saw it when using the bathroom and decided to take a detour to see if firsthand. It was a somewhat interesting area.

The Etruscan Necropolis is found halfway down the hill that Orvieto sits upon, and therefore the walk down is rather steep. Initially anyone with vertigo will not appreciate the wooden walkways which are rather see-through, but other than that it is a pleasant walk through a small forest. The tombs themselves are still being excavated, but are all in situ, so there is a mild feeling of Pompeii or Herculaneum, of 'walking through the past. Sadly all of the artifacts found have been removed, so it really is just the tombs themselves.

As with everything else in Orvieto, if it is the Duomo or the Underground, it was empty, so again, it was nice just wandering around for 30 minutes or so with the place to ourselves. Be aware that once done, you then have to face the hike back up to the city, but treat yourself to a gelato at the top and you'll have spent an enjoyable morning in the past.

I wouldn't go any later, as the sun can beat down, and then the walk up would be rather too hot!

We were staying in Orvieto for a few days and decided to stop at the necropolis before making our way up. We wandered up to the ticket booth, which was closed (it was around noon), however someone came out from the museum and let us purchase tickets. We were the only ones there.

The necropolis is almost haunting and I found it a bit creepy (but that's just me, hubby thought it was fascinating). We wandered around for a while and I loved seeing all the fruit trees (though, it was a bit sad the fruit wasn't collected as it seemed a waste..).

We walked through the museum before going on our way. Overall, it was a very pretty site for a very small fee. Worth spending a little time at, especially if you're interested in the Etruscans.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this necropolis. It has a little very well-kept museum included in the entrance ticket. The area is overgrown with vegetation but it makes it all the more enjoyable and gives it a mysterious feel. Very worthwhile a visit especially for foreign visitors that may have never seen anything like this.

The necropolis and the testimony of the Etruscan civilization that dominated the city until 264 BC when it was conquered by the Romans.

This site was a "must" for me being fascinated by the Etruscans. It didn't disappoint. The entry charges were very reasonable, and the little museum helpful in setting the scene; available explanations also in English. Then we were free to wander round the site. It is not dotted with explanation boards and so the imagination is free to wander. What incredible people the Etruscans were and what funerary memorials. I loved every second of our visit and will be the envy of my son who is studying archaeology at Durham University.
