Cerveteri is a town in Lazio.

Get in

There is a bus from Rome to the entrance to the old town. The Rome terminus is Lepanta Metro station on Linea A. There is also a train but the station is less convenient.

Get around

There's a local bus from where the Rome buses start to the necropolis. The old town is very small and walking is all that is required. The new town lacks interest.

a true street for the dead


The main sight, and a quite remarkable one, is the necropolis of the Etruscans. These were built on town planning principles similar to those for cities of the living and it is truly a 'city for the dead' to enjoy their afterlife. The museum in the old town is also well worth a visit.






The Bed and Breakfast Casa di Anna at Largo Boccetta 5-6 is very good and, equally important, seems to be the only accommodation in the old town.
