Etruscan Origins: Where did they come from?

    Hi guys, I will be honeymooning on a cruise around Italy in May but I have already been to Rome twice in the past years. As our ship will disembark in Civitavecchia, I was wondering if it is possible to arrange a shore excursion to Tarquinia and the Etruscan lands. My husband is interested in this subject the most and this could be a lovely gift for him. Thank you for your time!


  • Dear Adriana, thank you for your message and congratulations on your upcoming wedding - such a great experience to celebrate love in Italy! Visiting the highlights of the Etruscan lands from Civitavecchia is certainly a possibility and an interesting alternative to Rome.

    Your private driver and guide will welcome you directly at the dock in Civitavecchia and you'll reach Tarquinia after a pleasant 30 minutes drive. Tarquinia is situated on a small hill overlooking the Tuscia district and the extraordinary landscape of Bassa Maremma. Here your guide will introduce the famous Etruscan Necropolis which possibly stands, together with the Etruscan Museum (the greatest in the world), as a complete dictionary of the Etruscan civilization, with well-preserved sarcophagi, paintings, tombs and frescoes.

    After a free typical lunch you can decide to extend your time in Cerveteri, which was named, along with Tarquinia, World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
