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.

Client Testimonials

Dear Guiseppe and Jesse,
We just returned from our most wonderful vacation to Italy and wanted to first thank you for putting together such a wonderful trip, and second to provide some feedback for the future.

Hotels
1. Hotel Sovestro in San Gimignano was wonderful. The staff were very friendly and helpful and made the first portion of our journey very stress free. They made us feel like we were part of their family. I would recommend it to anyone and would specifically ask for it if we were to make a return visit.

2. Hotel La Baia in Monterosso was nice and it's location was very good especially for us older folks humping luggage from/to the train station.

3. Hotel Lucchesi in Florence- what can I say expect FANTASTIC. The rooftop view at sunset is well worth it. Again very friendly and helpful staff. Would recommend it to everyone.

Wine Tour
Money well spent. We had a great time overall. The driver Mario was OUTSTANDING. He had lots of local knowledge as well as about winemaking. USE HIM AGAIN!!!

The various wineries we visited on tour:
Altesino- fantastic and they were not cheap on their pouring. Great experience.
Azienda Agricola Patrizia Cencion Sloaria- Again a great tour by one of the owner's daughters. We felt like we were the only thing on their mind although there were other customers there. A great way to complete the day.

Again we had a fantastic time and are very appreciative of everything you booked for us. We wish you continued success and if our travels should bring us back to Italy, we know who to call.
