Vulci Archeological and Nature Park

The park covers an area of 900 hectares between the districts of Montalto di Castro and Canino. An area of unspoiled nature in the heart of the Maremma Laziale. Canyons have been carved into the volcanic rocks by the Fiora river which following a small waterfall widens into the magical Pellicone pond. You can meet Maremma cows and wild horses through Mediterranean scrub and small valleys besides the remains of the ancient Etruscan-Roman city of Vulci dating back to the 4th  century BC.

The park offers a network of marked trails to visitors, allowing you to visit the archaeological excavations as well as admire the natural beauty of the area. The remains of the town and the thermal plant testify the ancient city-state. You can enter the archaeological site through the remains of the Urban Gates of the imposing city walls. Near the West Gate you can admire the remains of a Roman aqueduct and also the forum with the Great Temple and the Honorary Arch, a commemorative work of Publius Sulpicius Mundus, a Roman senator who lived between the 1st century BC and the 1stcentury AD.

The Sacellum of Hercules, the baths and the Domus with its mosaic floors and underground areas are likewise noteworthy.
