Sutri Vacation Packages
Wander through the majesty of ancient empires in Sutri, once an important stopover on the road between Roman and Etruscan territories. In fact, the site has had a settlement of some sort since the late Bronze Age.
Sutri is a small town of less than 7,000 people, but it has a wealth of history. Legends say that the town was founded by the Roman god Saturn, thus its name. It’s located picturesquely on a small hill surrounded by ravines.
Notice that many of Sutri’s important sites were carved directly from natural rock. Approaching from Rome, see the Etruscan Necropolis, ancient tombs chiseled right out of the wall. Nearby is the amazingly well-preserved 2,000-year-old amphitheater, a serene piece of ancient architecture and a place to enjoy silent meditation. The Church of the Madonna del Parto is another building made from stone.
Not all of the ancient town remains, as much of it was replaced by the medieval structures in its quiet streets and town square. The Co-Cathedral of the Assumption of Mary is from the medieval period and features a pristine marble interior with gold detail. Venture farther into the ground to discover something really atmospheric, the cathedral’s crypt.
Give the kids a treat at the very modern park, Green Park Village. It has a restaurant, rides and games. Enjoy its summer water park as well.
Sutri is a small town with enormous historical importance, yet not extremely touristy. About 34 miles (55 kilometers) from Rome and 20 miles (32 kilometers) from the similarly ancient town of Viterbo, it provides a fascinating daytrip. Find plenty to see and learn here and savor the lovely foods available in the local restaurants. You’ll find few things to buy or places to stay; for that you’re better off returning to Rome.
