62 Reviews

Before the Romans came to dominate the peninsula, the enigmatic Etruscans inhabited much of central Italy. What little is known of this culture dating from the ninth century BC is largely based on their large necropolises. Two of the most remarkable of these “cities of the dead” are the UNESCO-listed sites of Cerveteri and Tarquinia.

Tarquinia and the Etruscan masterpieces: Necropolis and Museum – Private Tour

star-4.5

Tarquinia was the most important Etruscan city in the seventh century BC and it is particularly famous for the Monterozzi Necropolis, an ancient cemetery from pre-Roman times which houses more than two hundred painted tombs beneath its green mounds. You will explore imposing halls carved into the rock copying Etruscan houses (Necropolis literally means “City of the Dead”) to admire the bright colors used by the ancient Etruscans to paint landscapes, exotic animals and scenes of everyday life. 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!

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.

The most striking aspect of Tarquinia is undoubtedly the legacy left by the Etruscans. The Necropolis of Monterozzi (the highlight of your visit) dates back around 3000 years and has about 200 painted tombs.Visiting the Necropolis of Tarquinia (inserted onto the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2004, ) is beyond doubt the best way to get to know the magnitude and at the same time the artistic refinement of the Etruscan people. Not less interesting, to learn about the Etruscans, is The Necropoli della Banditaccia, in Cerveteri which has been declared by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site together with the necropolis in Tarquinia. It covers an area of 400 hectares (990 acres), of which 10 hectares (25 acres) can be visited, encompassing a total of about 1,000 tombs often housed in characteristic mounds. It is the largest ancient necropolis in the Mediterranean area.
