Driving there took over 90 minutes oneway on medium quality roads. Once we arrived, we were quite disappointed. While there are several sites combined, we mainly came for the Etruscan graves, of which there is few left. I recommend to better visit Cerverteri, which offers...More

Large outdoor natural site. Good defined paths but very hilly and only for able people. Trees give welcome shade when walking on sunny days. Very remarkable area covered in tombs that have been skillfully cut out of the rocky ground. Most are accessible but care...More

Gentile sig.Marta saro'in Toscana con 18-20 amici nel fine settimana tra il 12 e il 15 novembre. Vorrei dedicare con gli amici la mattina di VENERDI 13 NOVEMBRE alla visita di una parte della necropoli ( qella vicino al mare :s.Cerbone ecc.) e della Rocca di Populonia. Il tempo e' tiranno e abbiamo a disposizione solo un paio di ore. Dall'albergo di Castagneto C.saremo a Baratti verso le 9,30-10 e alle 12,30 dovremo ripartire per un'altra escursione lasciando la Rocca di Populonia. Ci puo' aiutare circa il percorso ( alcuni amici ed io siamo over ottanta),la prenotazione ed una buona guida ? Cordialmente la saluto e la ringrazio. Dott. Gonfiantini
