The cuts of the Vie Cave are little known creations by the Etruscans. They are made in the tuff rock. There are many hypotheses of their use including collecting water, communication channels, strategic roads, and tombs.

Walking down these “cuts” it is worth noting the level of the ancient pass is normally 2 m above the current ground surface. 

In the walls higher up you can see evidence of tombs for burial. Also possible to see are swastika symbols and Etruscan scripts. These ancient symbols represent a different meaning to that of recent history. 

The archaeological park "Città del Tufo" was created as a guide for the area.


Here you can find detailed information on where different tombs and cuts are and discover more about the area.
