The tour

This tour is recommended for those travelers who have already seen the beauties of Rome and want to relax in the natural scenery of the Lazio countryside and discover the mysteries of the ancient Etruscans who lived in an area called Etruria, extended from Tuscany to Umbria and northern Lazio , and at the end taste the typical products of this land (wines and oils) in a farmhouse or in a trattoria (typical restaurant).

Starting from the port of Civitavecchia, we go to discover the city of Tarquinia, which boasts the largest Etruscan museum in the world, the aristocratic Palazzo Vitelleschi, a masterpiece in Gothic-Renaissance style. Inside, you will see sarcophagi, paintings and frescos from the 6th to the 1st century BC. Just outside the city lies the necropolis of Monterozzi, the largest Etruscan necropolis that has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Tarquinia is a beautiful medieval city overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea and is surrounded by green hills and valleys. Founded in the eighth century BC, it later became an Etruscan city and gave birth to three of the seven kings of Rome, Tarquinio Prisco, Servio Tullio and Tarquinio Superbo.

Later, we pass to Tuscania, which stands on a tufa ledge at the beginning of the Maremma of Viterbo. Tuscania, the cradle of Etruscan civilization, is considered one of the oldest cities in Italy with a history that dates back to more than 3000 years ago.
We will have lunch in a local trattoria (typical restaurant) and then take a walk through the streets of the historic center, a neighborhood similar to a museum, and discover the picturesque Piazza del Duomo, its fountain and the churches of San Pietro and Santa Maria Maggiore. unique for their Gothic architecture and their early Christian origins.

On the way back we will stop at a farm where you can taste and buy liqueurs, jams, oils, wines, sparkling wines, honey, biscuits, fruit, extra virgin olive oil, other local products and excellent souvenirs to take home.

Note: this tour is not available on Mondays because the museum and the necropolis are closed.
