From Civitavecchia port to the discovering of two Unesco World Heritage sites


Both Tarquinia and Cerveteri are towns of the the Tyrrhenian coast north of Rome, whose past is linked to the Etruscan glorious culture, dominating over this territory from the VII to the II century b. C. They are both Unesco World Heritages thanks to their unique necropolis or "towns of the deads" dug into the volcanic rock and they can be easely reached from Civitavecchia port or from Rome. Undoubtely a must-see of Tuscia!

Itinerary

The tour will start with the visit of the Monterozzi necropolis of Tarquinia, which has been declared a World Heritage Site thanks to its unique painted tombs dating from the VI to II century b. C. Our following lap we'll be the National Archeological Museum housed in the Vitelleschi palace, where we'll admire some beautiful burial sets found in the nearby necropolis, a big collection of sarcophagus, and the famous terracotta winged horses which decorated the biggest temple of the Etruscan Tarquinia. After lunch in good local restaurant we'll move to Cerveteri to visit the Necropolis of Banditaccia, with about 2000 tombs localized in an area of 10 hectars. These monumental tombs were dug into the tuff volcanic rock and are characterized by superb carved interiors reproducing the the Etruscan houses.

A Recent Review of this tour

We thoroughly enjoyed our exploration of the Etruscan necropoli with Danila. She is very knowledgeable about the subject matter and brought along a book with additional photos to illustrate her points. Her English is excellent and she is very personable and enjoyable to be with. When she found out that the Etruscan museum in Tarquinia would be closed for an extension of the Easter holiday, she came up with an interesting plan to tour the medieval town of Tarquinia as a replacement.
