Nazionale – Piazza Duomo
At the foot of the northern side of Orvieto the Etruscan necropolis of Crocifisso del Tufo is one of the major funerary areas of the ancient Etruscan city. As a result of a “town” plan elaborated around the 6th century BC, it maintained the presence of more ancient tombs discovered during the excavations. The large number of inscriptions left on the tombs are perhaps the most consistent epigraphic testimony of the Archaic age, referring to a single town community.
