HOME WELCOME TO CIVITAVECCHIA THE PORT of ROME   /  SHORE EXCURSION TARQUINIA TUSCANIA

SHORE EXCURSION TARQUINIA & TUSCANIA

 

 

TARQUINIA, FORMERLY CORNETO, IS AN OLD CITY IN THE PROVINCE OF VITERBO,LAZIO, ITALY, NEAR TO THE PORT OF CIVITAVECCHIA, KNOWN CHIEFLY FOR ITS OUTSTANDING AND UNIQUE ANCIENT ETRUSCAN TOMBS IN THE WIDESPREAD NECROPOLI OR CEMETERIES WHICH IT OVERLIES, FOR WHICH IT WAS AWARDED UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE STATUS.
ALTHOUGH LITTLE IS VISIBLE OF THE ONCE GREAT WEALTH AND EXTENT OF THE ANCIENT CITY, ARCHAEOLOGY IS INCREASINGLY REVEALING GLIMPSES OF PAST GLORIES.

 

THE ETRUSCAN NECROPOLEIS

 

THE MAIN NECROPOLIS OF TARCHUNA, PART OF WHICH CAN BE VISITED TODAY, IS THE MONTEROZZI NECROPOLIS WITH SOME 6,000 TOMBS, AT LEAST 200 OF WHICH INCLUDE BEAUTIFUL WALL PAINTINGS, AND MANY OF WHICH WERE TUMULUS TOMBS WITH CHAMBERS CARVED IN THE ROCK BELOW.
THE PAINTED SCENES ARE OF A QUALITY VIRTUALLY UNRIVALLED ELSEWHERE IN THE ETRUSCAN WORLD AND GIVE A VALUABLE INSIGHT INTO THE SECRETIVE WORLD OF THE ETRUSCANS WHICH IS RARELY DOCUMENTED. 


THE NATIONAL ARCHAEOLOGICAL MUSEUM OF TARQUINIA

 

 

THIS MUSEUM IS HOUSED IN THE SPLENDOUR OF PALAZZO VITELLESCHI, WHICH WAS BUILT BETWEEN 1436 AND 1439 BY CARDINAL GIOVANNI VITELLESCHI DURING THE PAPACY OF EUGENE IV. THE COLLECTION COMPRISES MATERIAL UNEARTHED DURING EXCAVATION CAMPAIGNS IN THE AREA OF THE ANCIENT ETRUSCAN CITY AND ITS RICH, EXTENSIVE NECROPOLISES. THESE ARTEFACTS TELL US ABOUT THE LIVES OF THE ETRUSCANS AND ABOUT THEIR CONCEPTION OF WHAT HAPPENED TO THE DECEASED BEYOND THE GRAVE, AS THEY BELIEVED IN LIFE AFTER DEATH. OF SPECIAL NOTE IS A RICH COLLECTION OF ETRUSCAN SARCOPHAGI ON THE MUSEUM’S GROUND FLOOR, TOGETHER WITH THE SECTOR ON THE FIRST FLOOR DEVOTED TO ITS COLLECTIONS OF GREEK POTTERY, WHICH INCLUDES SEVERAL MASTERPIECES, SUCH AS THE KYLIX OF OLTOS, THE VASE OF CHARINOS, THE AMPHORA OF PHINTIAS AND THE BERLIN PAINTER’S CRATER. 

 

 

 

TUSCANIA IS AN ANCIENT TOWN WHERE THE OLD DISTRICT COEXISTS AND FITS PERFECTLY WITH THE NEW ONE, DEVELOPED IN RECENT YEARS.
THE TOWN HAS A STRATEGIC LOCATION, A FEW KILOMETERS FROM VITERBO, BUT ALSO FROM THE SEA AND FROM LAKE BOLSENA. THIS MAKES TUSCANIA ONE OF THE MOST FLOURISHING TOURIST CENTERS OF THE TUSCIA.
TUSCANIA IS ALSO GOOD FOOD, WITH ITS TYPICAL PRODUCTS SUCH AS EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OILS AND WINES, SNAILS, MUSHROOMS AND MORE. BASICALLY, FOR A HOLIDAY FULL OF NATURE, CULTURE AND GOOD FOOD, COME TO TUSCANIA IS DEFINITELY THE RIGHT IDEA.
