Museo Archeologico Nazionale Orvieto

Located in the medieval Palazzo Papale, the museum holds findings from necropolises in the Orvieto area. The outstanding collection includes the “buccheri”, Etruscan and Attic ceramics and among the bronzes a full suit of armor, composed of a helmet, cuirass, shin guards and shield. Of particular interest is the area with the two famous painted chamber tombs from Porano.

Necropoli del Crocefisso del tufo


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.
