Un vero e proprio ritorno in un passato lontano, dove tutto è rimasto immobile e silenzioso. Sito tenuto con cura da gruppi di volontari. Da visitare assolutamente. more »A real return to a distant past, where everything remained still and silent. Site carefully maintained by groups of volunteers. To visit absolutely.
Very nice. But difficult to find and get to. Possibly best to hire a car in either Rome or Fiumicino. Large area so you might need to spend 2-4 Hours there. Also necessary to read up on the site before a visit
Great site using sound and light to explain the burials and shows paintings on the walls using virtual reality. The tumuli are huge and give an Indiana Jones atmosphere
