Located just outside of the Etruscan Gates of Volterra are many archeological sites that date far back to the Roman period of time. One of these such sites is the Necropoli Del Portone. These specific tombs are North of Volterra, and take about 25 minutes to walk to on foot. The tombs are said to be excavated in the 1880′s and they date back to the Hellenistic Period 332-32 BC. Not only are the tombs an experience but the walk itself shows a few interesting places in Volterra being, Breathtaking views (obviously), a very old church (sadly it’s only open once a year), and Volterra’s Cemetery. These places are worth spending at least 20-30 minutes in each. Enough of that though, the following pictures show what one is to expect on their walk down to the Etruscan Tombs.
