      The famous Etruscan necropolis of Monterozzi, situated on a ridge southwest of the ancient city of Tarqinia, contains the most important painted tombs in Etruria, mostly rock-cut chamber tombs dating from the 6th to the 4th century BC. The Lyre Player and the Dancer frescoes come from the Tomb of the Triclinium (seen in the photo above). Its frescoed Etruscan tombs dating from BC  earned Tarquinia UNESCO  heritage site  status. The Museum is housed in a Renaissance palazzo in the city center while the painted tombs are located a short distance away. Copies of books  are available in the Museum bookshop. Check   this site for more info on Tarquinia.

Some of the tombs are monumental, cut in rock and topped by tumuli, accessible by means of inclined corridors or stairways.   The tomb was found near the picturesque and historic town of Città della Pieve (corriere pievese) Sarcophagi and Their Inscription. Clarita Natalini of the archaeological superintendency of Umbria, told Discovery News that one of the sarcophagi is made of alabaster marble, while the other is covered with painted plaster.
