Excellent tour with very good bilingual guide. The tour starts about ground and then goes underground, some stairs. Well worth making the effort to find

A fascinating trip in the underground etruscan and medieval old Chiusi. A well maintained path among antiques makes the visitor come back to very old times. The young lady who guided us was friendly and explained the history of Chiusi since the Etruscan era.

Discover how deep underground, below the piazza in Chiusi there are narrow passages, canals, a huge water tank, mostly built after the Etruscans died out, but still fascinating. Bring a torch and suitable shoes (some paths may be quite wet).
