Events may vary, always contact the organizers before going on site.

A guided tour inside the Archaeological Museum to discover the Villanovan civilization that settled in Verucchio some three thousand years ago. Your guide will tell you about the rise and development of one of the most advanced civilizations on the peninsula, discovered through decades of excavations that have unearthed hundreds of priceless objects. Artisans, priestesses, warriors and princes await you and tell their stories through our expert guide.
On this chronological journey you will discover:

- The Throne Room, the focal point of the museum, where the Lippi Tomb 89 and its incredible funerary equipment with its carved wooden throne are on display;
- The symbolism associated with the Museum's Logo, a divine and ritual connection with the world of nature, continuing in the Amber Room and new excavations;
- The Hall of the Sacred Area, the only reference to the Villanovan settlement with the votive well used for through the centuries until the 4th century B.C., even after the disappearance of the Villanovans.
