Another one of the great things that tourists can do when they visit Toscana is to visit the many excellent Etruscan museums and collections, like the very famous one, built on the site of an ancient Roman colony, at Cosa in Ansedonia. Toscana is rich with the ancient sites and relics of the great Estruscan empire. (The Estruscans were also making the wine in Toscana before the Roman times.)
The museum at Cosa was founded by the American Academy in Rome in 1990 and is one of the best archeological sites for the study of ancient Roman and Etruscan civilization.
The museum doesn't have a website but it is open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and it's phone number is 0564 881421. Here are some informations (in Italian) about the museum on the website of the Italian state heritage department.
It takes about 1 and a half hour to arrive in Ansedonia by car from our estate in Sant'Angelo in Colle and we highly recommend it.
