The rock necropolis of Falerii Novi - Faleri - Fabrica di Roma (VT)

Falerii Novi is the Roman city built in the third century BC to deport the inhabitants of Falerii Veteres. Its walls can be discovered along the road between Fabrica di Roma and Civita Castellana, near the hamlet of Faleri. Once you have taken the crossroads to the Falisco Park, you will reach the most well-known entrance, the Porta di Giove.
The rupestrian necropolis are located near, along the ancient Via Amerina, of which large tracts of cobbles are preserved: it is one of the lesser known Roman roads, little attested in ancient sources and epigraphic documents despite having played a role of primary importance as fast communication route, mainly for commercial purposes.
