Close to Pitigliano is the tiny tiny village of Sovana. But what makes this place especially interesting are the Etruscan Necropoli. In several places in this area the Etruscan have left there traces in the form of burial sites, caved into the tuffstone rocks.

The Etruscans inhabited northern and central Italy before 800 BC. Religion was an important part in the life of the Etruscans and they were fascinated on life after death. So it is maybe no wonder that there are so many of these Etruscan burial mounts sites.

Directions: Sovana is located in the region of Tuscany
