Sutri Pass

The visit includes the Archaeological Park with the Roman Amphitheatre, unique in its type as it was excavated entirely in an enormous tufa bank, the rupestrian Necropolis from the Roman Era and the Church of the Virgin Mary of Childbirth, also known as the Mitreo. In Palazzo Doebbing Museum it's possible to admire the famous Ephebus of Sutri, also from the Roman Era, and the pictorial and sacred artworks related to the history of the area. The Antiquarium, near the central square, has also recently reopened and is organised on two different levels dedicated to the Middle Ages. In it are exhibits related to the earliest phases of the Cathedral and the Roman period with the relief of Mithras. Continuing along the route, one reaches Villa Savorelli, known for its Renaissance garden, which can also be visited. 

The ticket is valid all day during opening hours.

In the Archaeological Park you can visit the famous Amphitheatre, a rare example of a Roman building completely excavated in the tufa without the aid of supporting walls, built between the Late Republican period and the beginning of the Imperial Age, built on an elliptical plan and divided into three orders: ima cavea, media cavea and summa cavea, accessible through the vomitoria, side entrances and exits. In the Rupestrian Necropolis, 64 tombs excavated in the tufa on different levels can be seen, including chamber tombs, double chamber tombs with or without entrance and arched tombs or arcosoli. Proceeding northwards, you will admire a votive chapel with well-preserved frescoes today dedicated to the Virgin Mary of Childbirth and known as the Mitreo, as it is related to the cult of the God Mithras. 

The Palazzo Doebbing Museum is dedicated to Father Joseph Bernard Doebbing and was the seat of the Bishop until 1986. Between 2010 and 2018, it underwent a renovation project by architect Romano Adolini. It's divided into several rooms on five levels with a total area of approximately 1000 square metres. The site combines ancient charm with the spirit of modern and contemporary exhibitions. It is in fact divided into three sections: one dedicated to ancient art with artefacts from the Roman era, one dedicated to sacred art and a gallery with works from the Diocese of Civita Castellana. Among the works of particular relevance is the Ephebus, dating back to the 1st century A.D., bearing witness to the millenary identity of Sutrina.
