Tarquinia & Tuscania

Venture into pre-Roman history in the ancient land of the Etruscans! Tarquinia is only a half hour from the port of Civitavecchia, so this is a nice choice if you don’t want too much driving.

 

A NOTE ABOUT DRIVING TIMES
This excursion has the shortest driving times from the port of Civitavecchia — about a half hour to Tarquinia, another 30 minutes to Tuscania and 45 minutes back to port.


SUMMARY
Before Rome was Rome, the Etruscans settled in this part of Italy. Today you can still see remnants of their sophisticated civilization as you enjoy the landscape in this picturesque area north of Rome.

DETAILS

Tarquinia
The history of Tarquinia goes back to long before the rise of Rome, when the Etruscans inhabited the central part of Italy. They were a fascinating and advanced culture, and their story can be experienced in Tarquinia’s excellent Etruscan museum containing an impressive collection well-preserved sarcophagi, paintings, tombs, and frescoes from the 6th to 1st centuries B.C.

Outside Tarquinia get a look at the “city of the dead” — one of the largest and most beautifully excavated necropolis in Italy. (Closed Mondays. Not suitable for those with limited mobility. There are about 15-20 stairs to get down into each of the tombs.)

Tuscania
Ancient history continues in Tuscania, where the Medieval basilica of San Pietro stands on the site of the Etruscan acropolis. Inside the church you will find the old mosaic marble floor, decorated with intricate geometric patterns, and massive columns from the 11th Century with beautiful capitals.
