Just 68,4 km from here...

The Antiquarium is housed in some rooms of the Parish Church of Sant’Appiano near Barberino Val d’Elsa and contains a collection of archaeological remains discovered during the various excavation campaigns held in the area of Sant’Appiano, San Martino ai Colli and Semifonte from the late 19th century onwards.This fertile and strategic area was densely populated from the 8th century B.C. A great many Etruscan tombs were found in the Elsa Valley countryside and the surprising number of finds that escaped the various profanations that took place over the centuries are today on display in the museum.
