Remains from the Etruscan era can be appreciated in Cortona, with the principle works consisting of the massive walls, double lancet doors, and a series of underground structures.

Outside, dominating the plain, the “meloni”, archaic etruscan mounds: one at Camucia and two in Sodo. Between these, the Tumulo II del Sodo stands out, with its spectacular terrace steps decorated with groups of sculptures and architectural elements.
