Welcome to Cerveteri


Founded in the 9th century BC, the city the Etruscans knew as Kysry, and Latin-speakers called Caere, was a powerful member of the Etruscan League, and, for a period between the 7th and 5th centuries, it was one of the Mediterranean's most important commercial centres. It eventually came into conflict with Rome and, in 358 BC, was annexed into the Roman Republic.
