Transfer to San Casciano dei Bagni and visit the Santuario Ritrovato, the sensational discovery that has excited the world of contemporary archeology. One of the most important discoveries of the Mediterranean that has rekindled attention to the past of this territory. A sanctuary initially frequented by the Etruscan people and subsequently made monumental by the Romans. The visit will be held by the Archaeological Group that follows the excavation campaign.
In the afternoon visit of Montepulciano and visit of an underground cellar in the historic center, whose origins date back to the Etruscans. Free time in Montepulciano for shopping in the artisan shops and a walk along the main street. In the basement of Palazzo Bucelli, one of the noble palaces of the elegant town, you will admire a sort of small outdoor exhibition of Etruscan and Roman art in the area.

Visit of Cortona and of the MAEC the Museum of the Etruscan Academy of Cortona. The museum is housed in Palazzo Casali, one of the oldest and most historic buildings in the city, where some of the most extraordinary masterpieces of the Etruscan civilization are exhibited in over 2000 square meters of exhibition space.
In the ancient collections of the Museum of the Etruscan Academy, which trace the history of the fortune of Etruscology starting from the eighteenth century and the local rediscovery of Etruria, the extraordinary Etruscan chandelier and the collection of bronzes are worthy of note. Do not miss the Tabula Cortonensis, the Etruscan chandelier and the reproduction of the Melone de Il Sodo.
