Tarquinia town Center, Lazio Italy

Tarquinia

Cities and Towns in Lazio

 

Tarquinia, a town where to discover Lazio's Etruscan past. The high relief sculpture of two winged horses, which once pulled a chariot mounted by a god, have become the symbol of the town, and can be seen on an immense terracotta panel housed withinTarquinia's National Archaeological Museum, together with hundreds of other unique exhibits, from elaborate funeral outfits to exquisite pieces of jewellery.

Just a few kilometers from the sea, in the province of Viterbo, the town of Traquinia rests on a hill opposite that on which the ancient Etruscan settlement of Civita once stood. Halfway between the old and new town, lies the Monterozzi Necropolis, now an UNESCO World Heritage Site. This burial ground contains some six thousand tombs, sixty of which decorated with elaborate wall paintings, and offers visitors the opportunity to admire the oldest works of art present on Italian territory. Those wishing to take a journey back in time should visit "Etruscopolis": perfect reconstruction of an Etruscan town.

Tarquinia still conserves much of its medieval town center, including numerous towers and a Castle in which, legend has it, Matilde of Canossa once stayed. Tarquinia is also home to beautiful houses of worship such as the Cathedral, and the 12th century Church of Santa Maria in Castello, this latter with magnificent Rose window.

Incredible Experiences in Italy for Exceptional Prices

Client Testimonials

I went to high school with the owner of the company who organized my honeymoon for myself and my now wife from Tokyo. We spent three short weeks seeing Piedmont and experiencing wine paradise there, then heading to Nice in France with our private driver and flying to Rome where honestly 4 days is NOT enough. They keep saying to spend more time and we could not agree more! You need to spend more time in many of these places. Over the course of our time in Italy we saw so much and loved it all, though Sicily and the Mondello estate they had at us, 2 minutes walk from the prettiest beach in the world was our favorite and Roberto the owners there who know Jess and her team made it so wonderful for us! We are planning on going back and even considering moving to Italy we had such a great time!
