A bit further away, we find Vetulonia, without a doubt one of the most important Etruscan cities. Thanks to excavations led by Isidoro Falchi in the late-19th century, we know that the ancient city was immensely wealthy, though it began to die out by the 1st century BCE. Today, you can visit the necropolis, one of the largest and most well-known of its kind. Other sites include the Pietrera mound from the late 7th century BCE, the Fibula d'Oro tomb and ruins of Etruscan-Roman houses, among other things.
Modern-day is also home to the “Isidoro Falchi” Archeological Museum, where many Etruscan artefacts are on display, including vases and urns coming from the necropolises of Poggio alla Guardia and Poggio Belvedere, grave goods and the stone stele of the warrior Auvele Feluske.
