I find the Etruscan civilization fascinating and have been to Sutri more than 20 times. I bring all my foreign visitor to this charming town.

Just came back from a weekend trip to Sutri, which is roughly about 1 hour by car from Rome center. Besides the old ruins of antique Roman amphitheatre, the little town has beautiful small alleys, houses and great local Tuscan food. Take a charming walk in the old town and stop for lunch. We went to a place called "La Taverna" which is a local hostaria serving home made cooking, grilled meat (grilled while you watch), delicious dishes with mushrooms, fantasctic local red housewine. All in all great value, we spent 40 Euros in two and had a great meal. The Taverna is just off the main square of the town, but I could not find it on T.A.
If you have more time left over take a stop over in Nepi on your way back to Rome, and see the old Roman acqueducts and explore the beautiful waterfall which is in the town, but rather hidden , you can ask the locals to show you " la cascata" and they will be happy to help you find it .

Etruscan tombs, magical Mithraeum with frescoes, well-preserved amphitheatre, nice nature, typical small city on the hill - with narrow streets and all the picturesque features of Italian countryside, historically important place for the Church
+ well-located public bathrooms; the area is partly accessible for wheelchairs/strollers

We had a great food in a lovely restaurant called La Locanda Di Saturno Di Faraoni Marisa

half-day / one-day trip, mostly outside -> you need a nice weather to really enjoy it
if you get bored in Rome/other big city, this is a great choice

The amphitheatre is carved right into the soft stone in the side of the hill just outside the city walls. You can walk from the town center though there is parking in front of the ruins, just watch out for all the cats.

There was no access into the amphitheatre when we were there though you can easily see through the gates and get a good glimpse of this amazing work. Worth a stop if you are in the area.
