"Etruscan Necropolis" Sovana Things to Do Tip by BruceDunning
Sovana Things to Do: 11 reviews and 19 photos
Behind the Medici castle is the path leading to the Etruscan ruins/caves. The path is really dark and scary for those trepid ones. The necropolis was a very large complex during Etruscan era, and the tomb of Hildabranda is here in the rocks. He was named Pope Gregory in 1073, and wailed a lot of power in Italy at that time. Below the town are a lot of caves, some carved out be water erosion,
and others from the Etruscan times for burials. The total path may take you into about 1 mile of searching; it is very dark and covered by forest and overgrowth.
