The walls made of tuff blocks with five access doors (three of which are still visible and in excellent condition), the Roman aqueduct, the large temple dating back to the 4th century BC, the Domus, are just some of the wonders that can be to admire.
In the park there are also some necropolises, among the most famous those of Cavalupo, Poledrara, Campo Maggio, the Tomba François (the most famous), the Tomba dei Tori.
In the castle of the park, dating back to the twelfth century, there is an interesting museum that exhibits many of the artifacts found in the necropolis and in the ancient city in the period from the third millennium BC. until the Roman era. Born as a Benedictine abbey dedicated to San Mamiliano, the Vulci Castle stands near the Devil’s Bridge. The museum is on two floors, particularly interesting is the collection of ceramics that tell the productive activities and trade of the city always in the Etruscan and Roman times.
