45 Reviews

When we think of ancient civilizations, more often than not we think of Rome. Yet before the Romans, there were the Etruscans who lived in west Italy from the 9th century onward. Their necropolises, or burial grounds, represent much of what we know about not only Etruscan culture but also burial practices from that ancient time.

Depictions of daily life can be found on frescoed walls, and many of the necropolises resemble Etruscan homes. The necropolis of Cerveteri alone has thousands of tomb structures which are arranged as if a small city. It can be navigated in largely the same manner, with paths, city squares, and even distinct neighborhoods.

The nearby Tarquinia necropolis has more than 6,000 tombs carved into rock. Interestingly, these tombs built for death are one of the greatest keys we have to understand how the Etruscans lived. Many of them are the only existing structure of their kind.

From CIVITAVECCHIA PORTO, under your cruise ship, to TARQUINIA and TUSCANIA!

Compared to the other companies we offer you, pick up by ship without bus and / or other wasted time, entrance paid by us for the attractions visited, we do not offer you lunch simply because it really has a paltry cost, with 20 euros you risk eating so much to feel bad. And sincerely since it is all about genuine food and superlative quality, if we made a convention, we will risk offending the restaurateurs and depriving you of the choice of all excellent dishes! Anyway, after this tour, you would advise all your acquaintances to do it, you will get sensations, smells and feelings that will remain impressed for a long time! Do you think that some American, Canadian and German gentlemen wanted information to buy a second holiday home in these places! We are talking about the new TUSCANY! Don't miss it

Thanks to our knowledgeable and passionate guide, you will discover the secrets of the most beautiful and fascinating tombs: the tomb of the Leopards, with its banquet scenes that show the incredible freedom of Etruscan women, the tomb of Hunting and Fishing, which represents the typical activities of the aristocracy, the tomb of the Warrior, where funeral rites are represented (including the cruel games that inspired the subsequent gladiator fights)… Walking through the charming alleys of Tarquinia, dotted with medieval towers and splendid palaces, you will reach Palazzo Vitelleschi, which houses in the National Etruscan Museum the most precious treasures of the ancient city: carved sarcophagi, frescoes, jewels made of gold and gemstones, and the famous Winged horses!

Etruscopolis: Once Were Etruscans

Etruscopolis: Once Were Etruscans

star-5

Etruscopolis is a trip in the bowels of the Earth, along the centuries in the Etruscan Civilization.It is an authentic artistic masterpiece which tries to defeat the strain of the centuries corroding and fading everything fleeting! It is a plunge in the past in the middle of decoreted tombs, homes, secenes of daily life, faithfully reproduced by the artist Omero "the last Etruscan". In fact in the large museum area of Etruscopolis, vases and bronzes of Etruscan inspiration are created not reproduced by OMERO who becomes in this way the continuator of the art of his ancient fathers. The artist Omero has managed to discover the secret of the archaic dough and the ancient manufacturing techniques, so that his creations are authentic even to the most sophisticated tests. For this reason, because of their strong resemblance to the original objects, they are sold with a certificate attesting its provenance like at British Museum or Metropolitan Museum in New york City.

Cerveteri & Tarquinia

Cerveteri & Tarquinia "The Etruscan Necropolis" Private Tour from Rome

The Necropolises of Cerveteri and Tarquinia, inserted onto the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2004, constitute a unique and exceptional testimoney of the ancient Etruscan Civilization, the only urban civilization of the pre-Roman Age. These tumuli or burial mounds reproduce the homes in their various types of constructions; because they were built to mirror the Etruscan habitation itself, they are the only examples left of such in any form anywhere. The two necropolises of northern Lazio are identical replications of the Etruscans' urban grid. The necropolis of Banditaccia in Cerveteri was developed from the 9th Century B.C., and then expanded beginning with the 7th Century. Similar is the developmental history of the necropolis of Monterozzi in Tarquinia. Both the painted tombs of the nobles and those in more simple styles are singular and extraordinary testaments to Etruscan quotidian life, as well as their ceremonies, mythology and even their artistic capacities.
