51 Reviews

When we think of ancient civilizations, more often than not we think of Rome. Yet before the Romans, there were the Etruscans who lived in west Italy from the 9th century onward. Their necropolises, or burial grounds, represent much of what we know about not only Etruscan culture but also burial practices from that ancient time.

Depictions of daily life can be found on frescoed walls, and many of the necropolises resemble Etruscan homes. The necropolis of Cerveteri alone has thousands of tomb structures which are arranged as if a small city. It can be navigated in largely the same manner, with paths, city squares, and even distinct neighborhoods.

The nearby Tarquinia necropolis has more than 6,000 tombs carved into rock. Interestingly, these tombs built for death are one of the greatest keys we have to understand how the Etruscans lived. Many of them are the only existing structure of their kind.

Tarquinia&Cerveteri private day trip from Rome

Tarquinia&Cerveteri private day trip from Rome

The most striking aspect of Tarquinia is undoubtedly the legacy left by the Etruscans. The Necropolis of Monterozzi (the highlight of your visit) dates back around 3000 years and has about 200 painted tombs.Visiting the Necropolis of Tarquinia (inserted onto the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2004, ) is beyond doubt the best way to get to know the magnitude and at the same time the artistic refinement of the Etruscan people. Not less interesting, to learn about the Etruscans, is The Necropoli della Banditaccia, in Cerveteri which has been declared by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site together with the necropolis in Tarquinia. It covers an area of 400 hectares (990 acres), of which 10 hectares (25 acres) can be visited, encompassing a total of about 1,000 tombs often housed in characteristic mounds. It is the largest ancient necropolis in the Mediterranean area.

From CIVITAVECCHIA PORTO, under your cruise ship, to TARQUINIA and TUSCANIA!

Compared to the other companies we offer you, pick up by ship without bus and / or other wasted time, entrance paid by us for the attractions visited, we do not offer you lunch simply because it really has a paltry cost, with 20 euros you risk eating so much to feel bad. And sincerely since it is all about genuine food and superlative quality, if we made a convention, we will risk offending the restaurateurs and depriving you of the choice of all excellent dishes! Anyway, after this tour, you would advise all your acquaintances to do it, you will get sensations, smells and feelings that will remain impressed for a long time! Do you think that some American, Canadian and German gentlemen wanted information to buy a second holiday home in these places! We are talking about the new TUSCANY! Don't miss it
