Known for its Etruscan importance, Tarquinia is worth a full day guided tour. Come and discover its Archaeological and Mediaeval treasures with our expert licensed tour guides!


Monterozzi Necropolis (UNESCO site)

Its importance is due to the high number of fresco painted tombs (about 150) dating between the VI and the II sec. b.C. and representing funeral rituals, scenes of daily life or images of the underworld. Among the hypogea that can be visited are: Giocolieri, Caccia e Pesca, Leonesse, Fiore di Loto, Padiglione di Caccia, Cardarelli, Fustigazione, Leopardi, Baccanti and Caronti.

National Archaeological Museum
Housed in the Gothic - Renaissance Palazzo Vitelleschi, it is among the most important Etruscan Museums. It displays a wide range of artifacts (pottery, bronzes, jewelry, sarcophagi) dating from the late Bronze Age (XII sec. b.C.) to the Romanization of the Ancient Etruria (I sec. b.C.) and including the terracotta sculpture of the Winged Horses and the original fresco paintings from four tombs (Triclinio, Bighe, Olimpiadi, Nave).
