In Etruscan Places, D.H. Lawrence opens his first section "Cerveteri" writing: "The Etruscans, as everyone knows, were the people who occupied the middle of Italy in early Roman days, and whom the Romans, in their usual neighbourly fashion, wiped out entirely in order to make room for Rome with a very big R." What I like about Cerveteri is that still today, it maintains this fascinating historical heritage. The Necropoli, known as Banditaccia, is one of the most interesting places to visit, where visitors can still experience the emotion of walking among, and even inside, the massive volcanic stone structures which form the characteristic round Etruscan tombs. In 2004, UNESCO included the Necropoli among its list of World Heritage sites.
