ETRUSCAN COUNTRYSIDE

VISIT THE NECROPOLIS OF TARQUINIA AND TUSCANIA

Duration: 9 Hours
Pick up & drop off (hotel)

Description

Not far from Rome, but very close to the port of Civitavecchia, it is a valley of very ancient times, where the Etruscans got settled in before reaching Rome, giving to the Eternal city a touch of their art and traditions!

Activity details

PICK UP TIME Suggested 7:30 am so that we will beat the traffic out of the city and we will back right on time before the traffic gets back in (it is flexible and you decide whenever during the day).

TARQUINIA ETRUSCAN NECROPOLIS After around 1 hour and 30-minutes’ drive you will reach the site of the Etruscan tombs! Just looks like an olive tree field but be careful because shaded by these centenary plants you will spot the entrances to this archaeological jewelry.

TARQUINIA ETRUSCAN MUSEUM Another gem in the little town of Tarquinia. Only if you combine the visit of the tombs with the museum visit you can really absorb at the best the splendor of the Etruscan Civilization!

TARQUINIA: THE TOWN After the more demanding visit of the Archaeological part of the town, please find the time to explore the other parts of it. Go for a free time walk through its little streets and don’t miss the wonderful view of the BELVEDERE!

TIME FOR LUNCH Again this would be something you will never find on your own. A spotless trattoria in the middle of nowhere that most likely will open just for us! Just give it a chance.
TUSCANIA After lunch incredibly the day will not be over just yet. A little further north is another unique town of Etruscan Origin where you will go to experience its peacefully quite wonderful view.

CHURCH OF SAINT PETER Not the most famous one, but a little non consecrated church in the middle of the Etruscan countryside. You will not believe your eyes. Even the movie Romeo and Juliet by Zeffirelli was filmed in it. You’ll surely be impressed.
