Chiusi

Chiusi - Chiusi’s origin dates back to the first millennium before Christ. In the 6th century B.C. Clevsin or Chamars (Chiusi’s Etruscan names) was one of the 12 most im¬portant cities in the Etruscan federation, and under King Porsenna Chiusi reached its peak when the Etruscans fought and defeated the Romans.

In the National Archaeological Museum it is possible to admire the greatness of this Etruscan city through the archaeological findings that express the exquisite sensibility of its artists and the mastery of its craftsmen.

In 391 B.C., Chiusi was besieged by the Gauls which marked the beginning of its decline and later became a Roman province. The city, rebaptized Clusium, and its territory continued to have an important role and in 89 B.C. its inhabitants were granted the Roman citizenship. In the 6th century A.D. Chiusi was occupied by the Lombards and became a dukedom. Later, Emperor Charlemagne trasformed Chiusi into a county.

Chiusi is close to important tourist centers such as: Chianciano, Montepulciano, Pienza, Orvieto, Cortona, representing a valid starting-point for interesting historical-artistical excursions. The nearby lakes of Chiusi, Montepulciano and Trasimeno as well as the uncontaminated Mountains of Cetona and Amiata make it possible to enjoy a relaxing nature holiday.
