Worth a visit to learn about the city and its life from early days up to World War II: But as undergrounds go, no very special.

The tunnels have a short, audio guided tour (20-25 min). It's different than many historic sites, with much of it requiring imagination of the events described. But if you are going to Viterbo in the summer, it offers a cool break from the afternoon heat,...More

You need to book and do check you have the correct language tour! A stroll to get to the first set of caves. Lots of steps inside and quite narrow. We had a good tour of several caves, lots of interesting information about their history...More

The tour is brief, but packs a surprising amount of information about medieval history, history of Viterbo and the region. A bonus is a small gift shop filled with local delicacies and unique jewelry that is made after ancient Etruscan jewelry patterns. Enjoyed immensely, thanks!

Viterbo Sotterranea is a network of tunnels under the city. It is still open to debate as whether or not the Etruscans started the tunnels, some scholars believe they were for collecting water. While the tour only covers 120 metres, the network of tunnels are...More

The "guided" tour was definitely interesting and I certainly love to see and hear about Viterbo's underground history but it did leave you wanting much much more. It was a bit short for me to say it's a must see in Viterbo.
