The rock-hewn amphitheatre of the Roman period

---------------------------------------

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sutri (ancient Sutrium) is a town in the province of Viterbo, about 50 km from Rome. It is picturesquely situated on a narrow tufa hill, surrounded by ravines, a narrow neck on the west alone connecting it with the surrounding country.

The modern comune of Sutri has a few more than 5,000 inhabitants. It ancient remains are a major draw for tourism: a Roman amphitheatre excavated in the tufa rock, an Etruscan necropolis with dozens of rock-cut tombs, a Mithraeum incorporated in the crypt of its church of the Madonna del Parto, a Romanesque Duomo.
