The area is freely visitable. So it's "open" 24/7. Only one tomb - the number 1 - is unaccessible. In order to visit it, you have to call the guides' number, as shown in the attached picture.

Beautiful necropole. Absolutely without people. Just stop next to road and you are there. No entrance fee, just small fence ?

È affascinante e c'è un panorama stupendo. Peccato sia chiuso.
