Castiglion Fiorentino
The Civic Archaeological Museum in Castiglion Fiorentino displays the artefacts found in the territory and area of Cassero, the town which was formerly an Etruscan village, with pieces dating back to the end of the 7th century.

The extraordinary reconstruction of the roof of an Etruscan sanctuary found in the Cassero area (end of 2nd to 5th century BCE), the warehouses in Brolio and Montecchio and the artefacts from the Etruscan site of Brolio Melmone are particularly spectacular.

On display in the medieval section are ancient and Renaissance majolica from the 9th century.

The underground path in the museum contains the ruins of a protohistoric village (7th to 8th century BCE), an Etruscan home and an Etruscan sanctuary, as well as ruins of a medieval tower, one of which was defensive.
