Cemetery tourism

Saw a lot of nice Etruscan tombs today. Intriguing stuff. I mean, the kind of images they chose to decorate the walls of their eternal resting places is just fascinating. Things we'd often call mundane, macabre, or downright crotesque. (Sorry, no photos of the actual things here.)


(This is modern, of course: one of the tombs was under a small cemetery.)


Their museum is in a neat little Medieval castle:
