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.

Really interesting archeological site. Approximately 20 underground tombs that can be visited, each with an individual entrance. Be prepared to deal with some steps (about 20 per tomb) in relatively humid conditions.

This is an open area where many burial tombs have been found. They are left in situ and they have entrances from above ground to glass windows where you can view the first chambers of each of the tombs. It's very interesting. Unfortunately being roughly...More

This Etruscan necropolis was built before the Romans existed, who in fact copied many things about Etruscans to adopted them into their own culture. The wall paintings are absolutely out of this world in detail and skill. The Tombs would have been filled with lavish...More

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
