Going a bit back in time to the Medieval era, you will stop in the the clifftop hamlet of Ceri for an authentic homemade Italian lunch at a local family owned restaurant in this tiny village that transports you back in time a thousand years.

ETRUSCAN MYSTERIES

.

.

History buffs and connoisseurs have frequently booked the Etruscan Mysteries signature tour from our sister company Stefano Rome Tours that takes you on a journey through the countryside that once belonged to the ancient mysterious Etruscan civilization, known as Etruria.

.

SUGGESTED ITINERARY FOR ETRUSCAN MYSTERY TOUR FROM CIVITAVECCHIA
.

  • Etruscan Necropolis
  • The National Museum
  • Medieval Borgo Tuscania

.

Your journey through the ancient Etruria (currently the region of Lazio), will take you to Tarquinia – the once important Etruscan city that takes the name after the Etruscan King, Tarquinius.

Here at at the Monterozzi Etruscan Necropolis you will discover the most unusual underground tombs.  Unlike Cerveteri that resembles a quiet natural park with tuffa carved tombs that resemble stone houses that you can stroll through, these tombs are painted!

There are on the average about a dozen underground tombs open at a time, and as you descend about a flight of stairs below ground, you can view through a glass entrance the vibrantly painted tombs that depict the lives of these ancient enigmatic people as they dine, play sports, hunt, celebrate, and enjoy life.
These ancient but beautifully preserved frescoes show you what Etruscans looked like, how they dressed, what they ate, how they feasted, how they hunted, what instruments and sports they played.  These snapshots into the lives of the Etruscans help bring this mysterious civilization to life.

Nearby inside the town of Tarquinia inside a grand palace is the Tarquinia National Museum that displays incredible treasures and artifacts discovered in the tombs you just visited. You’ll be amazed at how advanced this ancient pre-Roman civilization was.

Your journey continues to Tuscania – a quiet yet amazing historic town with strong Etruscan roots dating back 3,000 years.

Strategically situated hilltop, it offers an unforgettable view of the valley that inspired poets like D.H. lawrence to write: “The most beautiful valley in all of Italy: the Etruscan valley of Tuscania”.

The Must Sees in Tuscania are the architecturally significant churches of San Pietro and Santa Maria Maggiore on the outskirts of the town.
