Chiusi is especially famous for its magnificent Etruscan testimonies. Innumerable archaeological excavations brought to light unique relics and masterpieces, now to be seen at the Museo Archeologico Nazionale Etrusco, that certainly deserves a visit. In recent years, an interesting underground route became open to the public, the so-called King Porsenna’s Labyrinth, an impressive series of Etruscan passages and tunnels all beneath the small city, leading to a huge cistern of the first century AD.
The places the Etruscan dedicates to their dead are strewn all over the hill around the presently built-up area. In the course of time, but mostly during the nineteenth century, in the fields and groves around Chiusi more than a thousand burial places and chambers were discovered. Walking through this pleasant countryside near the lake will bring you back in time.
