Etruscans

In Tuscany there are many etruscan sites. Nearby Marina di Grosseto we suggest you to visit Vetulonia, Lago dell’Accesa, Poggio Pelliccia and Roselle.

Vetulonia: there are important monumental tombs as Petrera and Diavolino, but also the ” Town excavations” and the ruins of Arce walls.

Lago dell’Accesa: here Etruscans had a sheer village, whose location was due to the presence of many mining wells from which they mined silver, and other precious minerals. Today the tombs and the ruins of the houses are visible.

The Tumulus of Poggio Pelliccia: it is a few kilometers far from Ribolla, in the direction of Giuncarico. There are the ruins of a monumental Etruscan tomb. Probably it was owned by an aristocratic family of Vetulonia who had properties in that place
