Set out on a half day tour to explore and discover the Etruscan world. Pick up from your cruise ship or from Rome and, through a panoramic drive, visit the vast Necropolises of Cerveteri, a masterpiece of creative genius that reveals aspects of life, death and religious beliefs of the ancient Etruscans, and declared by UNESCO a World Heritage Site.

Explore a real city with streets and tumulus tombs arranged like houses with entrance corridors, rooms with frescoes like the Tomb of Rilievi decorated with plaster reliefs of mythological figures.

On the way back, you'll be struck by the landscape: large vineyards, tufa hills, Mediterranean trees and the Thyrrenian Sea

Itinerary

We'll enter the necropolis of Cerveteri which shows in a funerary context the same town planning and architectural schemes used in an ancient city. We will explore the most important typologies of tombs from the IX to the II century B. C. which constitute a unique and exceptional testimony to the ancient Etruscan civilization - the largest ancient necropolis in the Mediterranean area.

We'll walk along several streets to enter some of the hundreds of tombs, with huge tumuli up to 30m/99ft in diameter, tomb chambers hewn from the rock in the form of dwelling-houses, often with several rooms, with frescoes and plaster reliefs like the Tomb of Reliefs.

We'll then proceed to the village and castle which includes a small medieval burgh with a 9th century castle facing the sea, and built on the ancient Etruscan port.

After a stroll through the picturesque courtyards of the village and around the elegant castle, built on Etruscan port the tour will end back to your hotel or cruise ship.
