Enjoy a tour of Viterbo-Tarquinia (necropoli-museum-old town) with a private guide
Viterbo is a magnificent medieval town but largely ignored by mass tourism. Its only fault is that it lies between two of the best-known tourist destinations in the world, Rome and Florence. This calm and rich town can claim to have been time ago at the centre of the world when the popes were residing there. After a pleasant walk and a stop for a capuccino, we will visit Europe's best-preserved medieval quarters and the imposing papal residence. After a stroll in the nearby Villa Lante renaissance gardens with its joyous fountains, we will enjoy lunch at a private location with a historical garden in Vetralla, a town founded by the Etruscans. This mysterious people, the "forefathers" of the Romans will claim our full attention in the afternoon when we travel to Tarquinia. This town is home to the world-famous UNESCO heritage site of the unique painted tombs and to one of the principal Etruscan archaeological museums in Italy.

We first visited the Etruscan tombs and archaelogical museum in Tarquinia. There were few visitors to the tombs that made for easy and pleasant viewing of the incredible frescoes. Susanna stopped at a small olive oil processing plant on the way to Viterbo. While we enjoyed a delicious lunch, Susanna narrated the papal history of Viterbo whose ancient buildings we saw. The trip back to the ship through the sparsely populated countryside was enjoyable. Susanna is a very friendly knowledgable guide.
