In our small-group tour
Private tours of any group size is possible
If you’ve been to Rome and are now ready to explore other interesting sites while calling at the port of Civitavecchia, we can offer you an enjoyable and independent day tour. Discover the achievements of the Etruscan culture on a semi-private shore excursion to the ancient hill towns of Tarquinia and Tuscania.
We are happy to offer you two options for this best-in-class excursion:
1) Private tour for just your party
2) Small-group excursions – 89 Euros only!
Our driver will chauffeur you to the two towns, where you can explore on your own and be free to choose the sites you wish to see. In Tarquinia, attractions include the town’s necropolises (large burial grounds) and the Etruscan museum, where you can see well-preserved tombs. In Tuscania, you may explore the ancient historical center or visit the beautiful Roman Basilica of San Pietro. Our driver will make sure to return you safely and on time for the ship’s departure.
Your independent day trip starts as you leave the Civitavecchia port with your private driver and head through the beautiful Latium region on a 30-minute drive to the hill town of Tarquinia, a fascinating ancient town home to many historic and archaeological sites. Your driver will teach you about the history of the Etruscan people. Learn how the Etruscans populated central Italy long before the days of the Romans, and hear how they rose to prosperity and power, and then disappeared from history, leaving behind unsolved questions about their origins and culture. Your driver will also give you an overview of attractions and sights you may want to see (entrance fees at own expense).
When you arrive in Tarquinia, your driver will drop you off in a central location so you can explore on your own. Visit the Etruscan museum, where you can see well-preserved sarcophagi (ancient coffins carved from stone) and frescoes from the 6th to 1st centuries BC. Walk to the Etruscan necropolis to see one of the most beautiful and well-preserved tombs of the ancient world. You can also visit the aristocratic Palazzo Vitelleschi, a masterpiece of Gothic-Renaissance architecture.
Next it’s on to Tuscania, where your driver will recommend a typical trattoria, where you can enjoy lunch (own expense). Then explore the medieval historical center and see the beautiful Basilica of San Pietro. Standing on the town’s old Etruscan acropolis, the Roman basilica has a 13th-century facade with symbols of the Evangelists.
