What people are saying about Civitavecchia

We were met right on time at the port entrance by our guide Sandro, who was very friendly and spoke wonderful English. He took us to the hilltop ancient town of Tarquinia, where we visited an Etruscan museum and the city hall, and then he did a slight detour to show us the area around Porto Ercole, before taking us to the hilltop town of Capalbio, where he found us a restaurant for bistecca fiorentina (our first - so delicious). We then went to the Tarot Garden of Niki de Saint Phalle, which is amazing in its collection of giant, whimsical mosaic sculptures, some of which are as big as a house! We had a great day and would happily tour with him again. Very pleased with our experience.

So pleased we took this tour. Capalbio is a little gem of a place - authentic Tuscan walled town and not inhabited by herds of tourists- just beautiful ancient buildings and Tuscan hills. A very special 3 course lunch included at a place the locals go- Then afternoon at the magical Tarot gardens. So worth a visit - kids would love it - even grown up ones - for a place that has soul and mystery and surprises and beauty . Our guides Andreas and Maria were so informative and very good company. A perfect day out in Tuscany and not exhausting like the big cities.

This was so wonderful, I learned so much about these people and lives Andres was so kind who answered all my questions and took the time to give me and my two kids the best experience... I highly recommend this tour with Andres

We were lucky to have Andrea as driver and guide. We had plenty of time for necropolis and Tarquinia wonderful museum. Andrea made us discover the rich and beautiful city of Tarquinia. Restaurant was authentic and nice.

This park is so unique and fascinating. Loved walking through and finding different sculptures. My favorite was the leaning horse... check it out.
