We are indeed tour guides but first we are travelers. We understand there might be last minute unforeseen circumstances that might cause a change of plans. When we sat down to write our cancellation policy we decided to think to what Cancellation Policy we would like to have for ourselves for our trips.

Visit the Etruscan archeological site in Tarquinia accompanied by an expert guide who will show you an incredible number of ancient, pre-Roman treasures.

Tarquinia (in Etruscan: Tárchuna), lies four miles inland from the Tyrrhenian Sea, just north of Civitavecchia. The town grew out of the ancient Tárchuna (2 miles northeast), which was one of the principal cities in the Etruscan confederation against Rome. Conquered by Rome in 311 BC, Tárchuna became a Roman colony. It declined during the late Roman Empire, and was abandoned after the Lombard (6th c. AD) and Saracen (8th c. AD) invasions. 

The tombs of the Necropolis of Tarquinia are carved in the rock and accessible only via sloping or stepped corridors. Most of them were made for a single couple and each constitutes a single burial chamber. Explore these ancient constructions, as well as apartments and the famous painted tombs, dating from the 7th c. BC. Adorned with scenes of human life that include hunters, fishermen, musicians, dancers, jugglers and athletes, the painted tombs illustrate the wealth and power of the occupants for whom they were built.

For instance, the 4th c. AD 'Tomb of the Lionesses' consists of a small chamber with gabled roof. The painting depicts flying birds and dolphins and scenes from the life of the Etruscan aristocracy, and is just a taste of what you will experience on this tour.

    Hi all,

    I will come to Rome next June as a gift for the achievement of my graduate program focused on the Greek, Etruscan, and Roman Art.

    I am very interested in your one-day trip to the Etruscan Highlights of Tarquinia and I was wondering if you could suggest me other archeological sites to add to the visit with. Am also interested in your Vatican Early Bird Tour but there are so many parts of the Museums that I would love to visit and are are not included in your itinerary.

    I forgot to mention we are three adults!

    Any suggestions will be much appreciated.

    Best,

    Eleanor

    Hi Eleanor!

    first of all, congratulation for your success! We would be too happy to celebrate it with you!

    We are sure that our private tours will satisfy your curiosity and enrich your studies.

    The Etruscan Highlights of Tarquinia Tour is certainly the most-recommended one! We would be happy to customize your itinerary including for example the Etruscan Necropolis of Cerveteri (Banditaccia) where your private driver and your guide will accompany you before returning to Rome.

    Moreover, regarding the private tour of the Vatican Museums, we are happy to inform you that our expert and passionate guides will be more than happy to show you the section dedicated to the Etruscan artifacts hosted inside the Vatican Museums and any other site you wish to visit (with the exception of those Rooms that need special permits).

    Please do not hesitate to contact our tour design team (info@eyesofrome.com) that will personalize your itinerary and will assign to your tour the guide that most shares your passions with you!

    A presto!
