VULCI

Once a grand Etruscan settlement, Vulci is today a wonderful and interesting visitor centre and a short distance from the city of Montalto di Castro, in the heart of Tuscia Laziale. The farm house Il Quarto is only a short distance away from this splendid ancient location, offering guests the possibility to truly experience the culture and traditions of the Romans and Etruscans with ease.

An integral part of the charming Vulci, the archeological area is one of the largest and well preserved Etruscan sites in Tuscany, filled with necropolises dating back to sometime around the 8th to the 10th century B.C. Right on the boarder of Tuscany and Lazio, these necropolises have revealed a great number of historic ruins and funeral urns that are today housed in numerous museums across Italy. With so little evidence remaining from the Roman and Etruscan eras, Vulci plays an important part in keeping alive the incredible ancient history and culture of Italy.

The Archeological Museum at Vulci houses many of the ruins and object found in the various archeological sites in the territory. The museum itself is a piece of history, set up inside an ancient 9th century chateau and displays a large collection of vases, funeral pieces and urns.
