Maintaining the Etruscan theme from my Fiesole post (Ancient Ruins in Fiesole) and the continuing saga of my Italian vacation, the Vatican has its own wing of Etruscan artifacts (quite large too!). The Etruscan wing of the museum was a pleasant surprise for me. Unlike the rest of the Vatican Museum which held wall to wall visitors, the Etruscan Wing was virtually empty. In fact, the only other visitors in the wing were a family that likely took a wrong turn somewhere and ended here by mistake!
For vehicles of the wheeled type, the museum has both a chariot and cart.
Also on display as a centerpiece to one room is the bronze statue of the Mars of Todi from the 5th-4th Century BC.
In another room is the work, "Dying Adonis."
A few arms and armor samples,
and a fantastic pottery display to finish out the collection.
