This was an exciting visit. There is the history of the tombs at the entrance. The tombs have steps and are not always easy to get in and see.

We arrived after closing time on a Sunday afternoon--and, after expressing our disappointment at missing the opportunity to see the necropolis, a sympathetic staff member gave us a personal guided tour of 8-10 tombs. We will be forever grateful for her accommodation.

I would say there are about 25 different tombs to visit. You descend a flight of steps going underground and then view them through a window on a timed light. You can switch the light on as many times as you like and the window...More

A UNESCO World Heritage Site that was almost empty when we visited. Remarkable painted tombs 2,500 years old, some on a par with the Egyptian Valley of the Kings

We tried to visit several Etruscan sites while touring north of Rome, there are many and they are so varied. This site is noted for its underground burial tombs and it did not disappoint.

2500 year old Etruscan tombs. It's amazing to actually see what to date I had only seen in my art history class. Haunting and beautiful...it gives a real glimpse of a major ancient culture.

There is so much to see here! So many chambers to climb down. Some are highly decorated. You really need to read up on the Etruscans to fully understand what you are seeing. Tiny shop and basic refreshments only.

We took a taxi and arranged for the driver to collect us some hours later. You need to do this as there are no taxis in Tarquinia. On weekdays there is a regular bus service.

Have not been to Ostia so cannot compare. We really did enjoy Tarquinia. They have self guided tours. It is quite extensive and there is a lot of going up and down stairs to see the individual graves. It sits on a hill top... More
