The Etruscan Tomb La Montagnola

Visit the magnificent Etruscan burial grounds in Sesto Fiorentino

Sesto Fiorentino
The Etruscan Tomb La Montagnola, first discovered in 1959, dates back to the 7th century BC. It is composed of a covered corridor (also called a “dromos”) with a false vault and a tholos tomb with a false cupola and central pillar. The smallest tomb present is the Mula tomb and it was first discovered in the 15th century. It was part of the Garbo Pecchioli villa and was used as a cellar.

The La Montagnola tomb is one of the largest and best-preserved Etruscan tombs in the area. Along with the nearby Mula tomb, it is a wonderful example of a noble burial place that characterizes the area along the Arno River.
