This spectacular ruined city is one of the only Etruscan sites that overlooks the sea. Thought to have once been a major hub of metalworking in the Mediterranean, the ruined city includes 3,000-year-old tombs that were cut into soaring cliffs, built into great stone vaults, and set in elegant small temples. There’s also a perfectly preserved medieval fortress with 360-degree views.
