Start with museum located in old abbey located next to a Roman amphitheater and add a lot of rare Etruscan artifacts. This museum is a gem. Especially for anyone interested in items from Etruscan era. We spent a wonderful afternoon here and highly recommend it

A much bigger and more interesting collection than we'd expected, in a historically evocative setting (a former monastery built onto the side of the city's ancient Roman arena). Hardly anyone goes, and it's a bargain (get the combination ticket for this, the Vasari house and...More
