Yesterday’s early-fall warm weather led to a trip outside of Rome, to Cerveteri. Cerveteri, about an hour outside of the city, is home to la Necropoli della Banditaccia, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here lie about 1,000 Etruscan tombs, mostly circular mounds carved into the Earth, several of which are quite well-preserved and visitors can enter. The tombs date from about the 9th century to the 3rd century BC.

Here are some images.
