Chiusi

Chiusi

Why visit CHIUSI?

Because it was one of the main etruscan cities of Italy, and hosted one of etruscan kings, known as Porsenna in the VI century BC, therefore it preserves many finds of the time.
Because visiting Chiusi means, seeing beyond the city in the light of the sun, as there is a subterranean exhibition of the most copious Etruscan epigraphic collection in the world, made up of 300 urns and 200 tombstones. Because it preserves a long labyrinth, excavated between the 4th and the 1st century BC, 25 meters deep and 130 meters long, which was part of the Etruscan water system, made up of numerous tunnels and cisterns still practicable today.
Because, outside the town, there are two towers with two particularly funny names: "Torre caught this" and "Torre caught that", which demonstrate the importance of derision of the adversaries in the Middle Ages, which avoided or encouraged the conflicts between cities or rival factions.
Because it boasts a small lake, bordering the Trasimeno, immersed in a wonderful natural setting, whose perch is roasted on the embers of lake reed, known as "brustico".
