A journey through the Etruscans
You will observe ancient finds related to the daily life of the Etruscan civilization in the Archaeological Museum of Chianciano, which houses the largest collection in the world of Etruscan Canopic jars. You will visit the Archaeological Civic Museum of Sarteano, which displays the treasures found in the nearby necropolis, and a perfect scale-of-1.1 reconstruction of the Tomba della Quadriga Infernale [Tomb of the Infernal Chariot]. Only on Saturdays, as an alternative to the visit of the Civic Museum of Sarteano, you can visit the real Tomba della Quadriga Infernale in Sarteano in the locality of Pianacce, dating back to the 4th century B.C., whose colors are incredibly well preserved.
