About
The archeological park is divided in two areas: the City of the Living with two didactic models of houses a Bronze Age hut and an archaic Etruscan house, and the City of the Dead with two burial grounds Necropoli Gradone (7th-6th cent. b.C.) and Necropoli S.Giovanni (6th-4th cent. b.C.). The two Cities are connected by the Via Cava del Gradone, an ancient path carved in the tufo (volcanic rock).

A wonderful day with our children!
Jul 2015 • Family
I spent a very nice day visiting the Etruscan site and enjoying the really helpful support for all my children offered for the really kind and family friendly worker at the museum. I could chill out under the oak trees, have lunch in the nice picnic area and visit the amazing Etruscan site!
Bring some good shoes and a baby carrier ! Not suitable for strollers!

Beautifully curated introduction to Etruscan history
Apr 2015 • Family
While staying near Pitigliano, we became entranced by Etruscan history and archeology. I'm sorry we visited this open-air museum at the end and not at the beginning as it gives a very gentle introduction to this historical period. The Via Cava is not long, but in great condition with a convenient handrail for the over-70s. The necropoli were not easy to see into, but were fairly easy to access. I didn't have time to do the whole trail, but what I did see was a fair representation. Most special, though, were actually the facilities provided. There was a nice mock-up of an Etruscan hut and a lovely outdoor area with cushioned benches and magazines for people to relax with. The bookstore was the most complete one I saw, with lots of information in both Italian and English and the curator herself was warm, friendly and informative. It was very clear that the whole place was curated with love and care and I would wholeheartedly recommend it.
