Very nice open site to explore the ancient necropolis of the Etruscans at Sovana. There is a charge to enter the site and you can purchase a guide book, although we didn't, and found that the information boards were sufficient for our needs. We took...More

We recommend that you walk from Sovana to these Etruscan remains.Down an ancient pathway and along the road, the final sight of these ruins in the trees is very atmospheric. There is a good visitor centre but really this is a voyage of discovery and...More
