For anyone who loves ancient history this necropolis is amazing. Not much left exists of the Etruscan civilization and so this rather large complex of buildings and tombs is really fantastic. You can also have a great view of the sea and of Lazio's landscape....More

This necropolis has very well preserved tomb paintings. Quiet area that is away from the busy sites of Rome.

It took a lot of walking & many stairs, but a fascinating glimpse into the Etruscan history around burial. All the graves have English explanations. My 70 year old mom struggled with the stairs.

When I first went back in the early 1980s you could still enter the tombs and only the 'tomb of the leopards' had a barrier. Now you can only look through the glass but the paintings are still so beautiful. We were lucky to be...More

Very interesting site with a lot of tombs. There are lots of stairs – you have to go down at least one flight of stairs and sometimes more to each tomb. All of the tombs have lights on timers and glass walls at the bottom...More

Take time and get out of the city. This location is easy to get to by taking the train from Roma Termini to Civitavecchia, then the Hertz Rental Car Agency is 500 feet from the train station. From there, it is an easy 20 minute...More

Interesting piece of Italian history in a region with many Etruscan museums, necropoli, and walled medieval cities.

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.
