Sutri is a town in the province of Viterbo, about 50 km from Rome, and about 30 km south of Viterbo. It is picturesquely situated on a narrow tuff hill, surrounded by ravines, a narrow neck on the west alone connecting it with the surrounding country. Sutri has a few more than 5,000 inhabitants. It ancient remains are a major draw for tourism: a Roman amphitheatre excavated in the tuff 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. The city was founded by the Etruscans on a tufaceous hill at the confluence of two streams. It was conquered by the Romans in 389 BC and it flourished under their rule because of its position on the Via Cassia. Part of Sutri is on higher ground (acropoli) and notwithstanding the fact that it is now occupied by the Cathedral and by Palazzo Vescovile (bishop’s palace) it still conveys the image of a fortress.
The main medieval buildings of Sutri retain something of the Etruscan and Roman times and this applies to the whole town.
About 1 km south of Sutri there is to be found a Roman necropolis consisting of 64 tombs of various shapes and sizes carved directly out of the ‘tuff’ rock.
From Sutri you can reach very easily the following latium sites: LakeVico and Lake Bracciano.
