Cerveteri accessible disabled tours center of the Etruscan culture

 

The Etruscan city of Cerveteri emerges in ancient historiography in 540 BC.

According to the testimony of the historian Herodotus, fought alongside the Carthaginians in the battle of the Sardinian Sea against the Greek settlers of Focea for the dominance over the waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea.

The Etruscan-Carthaginian political alliance also refers to the texts engraved in Etruscan and Phoenician on the gold plates found in the sanctuary of Pyrgi.

A ceretano magistrate, Thefarie Velianas, mentioned at the beginning of the V century. BC, he dedicated a sacellum and a statue to Uni, divinity identified in the Phoenician text with Astarte.

Necropolis of Cerveteri

The Necropolis of Cerveteri, has been inserted in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2004.

Is a unique and exceptional testimony of the ancient Etruscan civilization, the only urban civilization of Pre-Roman times in Italy.

The frescoes inside the tombs, real reproductions of Etruscan houses, faithfully reproduce the daily life of this lost culture.

Tumuli

The Tumuli reproduce typologies of buildings that no longer exist in any other form.

In particular from Cerveteri you will have the opportunity to access the Etruscan Necropolis of the Sorbo and the Etruscan Necropolis of Banditaccia, considered one of the most important necropolis of the Mediterranean Sea.

Necropolis of Bandittaccia

Necropolis of the Banditaccia covers about 10 hectares and consists of almost 400 burials that refer to a chronological arc between the VIII and the II century BC.

Walking through the ancient streets of the necropolis you will have the opportunity to admire graves, houses, main and secondary roads, tombs and places of social life.

Tombs to Visit

The symbol of the necropolis is represented by the Tomb of the Reliefs, a great noble hypogeum with a beautiful decoration of the burial chamber.

We also suggest you visit the Tumuli outside the Banditaccia enclosure, finely decorated.

Among the other tombs we also recommend visiting the Tomb of the Shields and Chairs, the Tombs of the City Hall and the Tomb of the Five Chairs.
