Near Marmini’s Area, via di Porta Diana, Volterra
A hidden jewel not so popular in the turistic rutes, a place that hosted for centuries those funeral urns which are now displayed in the Guarnacci Museum of Volterra.

The sites at Marmini, S. Giusto and Ulimeto offer some examples of tombs belonging to the Hellenistic period (end 4th-1st cent. B.C.). Their finds, among which are the famous cinerary urns made of tuff and alabaster, are part of the extraordinary Etruscan artistic collection in the Guarnacci Museum, one of the most ancient public museums in Europe.
