I wanted to see Etruscan graves and I have seen many in different forms, tumulus, sarcophagus and cut in the rocks, you can choose many walks in this Archaeological Park and be prepare to spend there all day. Take sandwiches as you can make a picnic in a nice spot, there are special places benches etc.
Driving there took over 90 minutes oneway on medium quality roads. Once we arrived, we were quite disappointed. While there are several sites combined, we mainly came for the Etruscan graves, of which there is few left. I recommend to better visit Cerverteri, which offers graves of the same style, but more and better. Or go to Tarquinia for late... 更多
Very interesting and very nice walking paths between the different places. At both sites were guides sitting and doing tours. At the day we visited, most customers were non Italien, but the guides told us in very good english, that they are doing the tour only in Italien. Very disappointing and respectless in my opinion. For two spots and no... 更多
I visite the Archeological Park of Baratti and Populonia with turists from all overdose the would... They love it for the location, the ruins,the Etruscan tombs, the paths in the woods....and, the for the many Restaurants close by. Up to the hill of Populonia unmissable the overview to Elba Island and Val di Cornia Valley!!
the guide/archeologist gave us a splendid tour of the acropolis excavations. our kids (8&9 years old) loved it to ask questions about the etruskians, which were all addressed by the guide. i wish all archeological sites were explained like this
If you have time, plan to visit the necropolis (including the Etruscan tombs in the wooded area with the caves) and the acropolis in Populonia. There are several guided tours and activities, such as pottery and mosaic making (and Daniela makes them even more interesting and fun for children!). We spent almost the entire day there. And by the way,... 更多
The archeological park of Baratti and Populonia offers a unique perspective on the world of the Etruscan population who lived in that area thousands of years ago. Some of the tombs are really impressive, and the park itself is huge. You can have a great walk around and also get some historical insights!
Beautifully maintained site which covers a large area so be prepared to do some walking!! There are free guided tours of some of the site available hourly although these seem to be in Italian only. Well marked trails to the furthermost areas such as the Etruscan houses and workshop area and a fair selection of types of tomb in a... 更多
We visited both the necropolis in the lowland and the so-called acropolis on the hilltop. There is also a necropolis set into the rock on the hillside. We were able to go inside some of the reconstructed tomb mounds and had good guidance from an archeologist who was leading a small group around the necropolis. The acropolis has many foundations... 更多
Not well none area but very interesting and brilliant walking in the tuscany countryside. Not expensive you pay 16 euro to visit 3 sites with car park included for the first two sites. It is very organized with tourist information all around the park and if you wait you can visit the park with someone that will explain all the... 更多
