The Etruscans, a fascinating population whose far-off presence is still a strong characteristic in central Italy, the ancient Tuscan Etruria above all, are the protagonists of our itinerary.
It was a great Etruscan urban civilisation, with 12 big cities, the famous Etruscan “dodecapolis”.
Three of the large Etruscan cities are in our area: a more than valid reason for imagining you are an ancient traveller and discovering the wonders of our Etruscan past!
Starting from the gorgeous Populonia, let's discover the trades that connected it to the rich mines on Elba, then we will move on to the charming Vetulonia, the eternal rival of Roselle, the beautiful city that looked out onto Lake Prile, which has now disappeared, that watched over the city of Grosseto.
From here, we can set out, like ancient travellers, towards the “citta’ del Tufo” cities, stopping off at the necropolises and venturing along the Vie Cave. That is where our journey ends, winding among some of our most spectacular locations.
