TOUR DESCRIPTION
This excursion is aimed at increasing the knowledge and value of the archaeological site of San Basilio.
The tour starts with a visit to the Cultural Tourist Centre, a small museum that houses some of the finds recovered during the different excavation campaigns (Greek, Venetian and Etruscan pottery for household use, both imported and produced locally, kitchen pottery, glassware and other items from the Roman villa rustica). Next, we will move to the excavation site: the recent prosecution of the archaeological research on the southern side of the Forzello estate has increased the historical and archaeological value of our area. During the tour, you will receive basic information on the techniques and equipment used in archaeological excavations. The historical and artistic insight in this unusual and historically rich hamlet will finish with a visit to the Romanesque parish church of San Basilio, which stands on an ancient sand dune, on the so-called “sand mounts”.
