Full description
Discover the city of Tarquinia and visit the UNESCO world heritage site of the Etruscan necropolis, containing tombs painted more than 3000 years ago, with the help of your local guide. Learn about the extraordinary artwork in the tombs, which predates the Romans and gives unique insight into the ancient culture and daily lives of the Etruscan people. 

Leave the necropolis, and follow your guide to one of the most impressive museums on the Etruscans, located in the spectacular Palazzo Vitelleschi. Continue your discovery of Etruscan life and see items of pottery, arts and crafts which have previously been displayed in New York and Paris. 

Finish your time in Tarquinia by relaxing and enjoying an authentic Italian lunch, in a traditional local restaurant. Savor the unique and dazzling flavours of the Lazio region, for the perfect end to your day of discovery.

Upgrade the default tour option to also explore the underground city of Etruscopolis and see a massive underground quarry from the 4th-century BC featuring recreations of Etruscan homes and see what life was like in a time before the Romans.
