In Cetona, you can try seeing what it was like to live between the Palaeolithic (over 50,000 years ago) and Bronze Age (2nd millennium BC) in the Belverde Archaeological Park and the Archeodrome. The caves in the rock, used as a shelter, have yielded important remains. Today the “grotta San Francesco” can be visited with a guide, the largest cave there is and with traces from various eras, the “Riparo del Capriolo” and the “grotta Lattaia”, used as a place of worship, even in Etruscan and Roman times. An equally impressive return to the past is provided by the installation dedicated to experimental archaeology. It is the faithful reconstruction of a small village from the Bronze Age and a cave settlement of the Middle Palaeolithic, alongside spaces for teaching the techniques of excavation and archaeological investigation, in addition to areas for workshops and manual activities aimed, above all, at young visitors.
