Sarteano is an wow place. No matter your interest, there is something for everyone from Etruscan tombs and Roman roads, to medieval churches and Renaissance palaces.
The first sight is the giant castle at the top of the hill at 500 plus meters above sea level and surrounded by green. To visit it is to make a trip back through hundreds of years of history, passing through the small alleyways and the giant Todeschini Piccolomini Palace, which stands just below it.
The central square offers: the medieval loggia as the entrance way to the Arrischianti Theater, which the Sarteano public used from the 18th century down to the mid-1960s, when the structure was closed for restoration. Twenty years later, a group of amateurs founded a new Academy of Arrischianti, and in the year 2000, Sarteano inaugurated a new theater, company and regular repertory.
And just behind the main Sarteano’s square: City's Archeological Museum located inside of the 16th century Gabrielli Palace
Sarteano also was well knows more than 2,300 years ago during the Etruscan period. For that the legend of the presence of the Tomb of Lucomone Porsenna, which portrays him, his carriage being dragged by golden birds.
In the museum you can find a significant amount of quality Etruscan vases, statues and objects, many of them excavated from the area around the town.
