The Painted Etruscan Burial Vaults of Tarquinia

 

Link to Necropoli della Banditaccia, near Cerveteri

 

 

Tarquinia (300s and 400s BC) is a bit younger than Cerveteri.  It is also a better known necropolis because of the painted burial chambers.  However it has none of the atmosphere - being more akin to a collection of shallow mine shafts or air raid shelters in a field!!  Still, the burial chamber decorations are fascinating.
