    What to Expect
    Get picked up at your centrally-located hotel in Rome and begin the trip to your first Tuscia destination.

    Tuscia is the historic name for the beautiful land of the Etruscans. You will be bewitched by the unaltered Etruscan charm and beauty that the Tuscia area preserves, all throughout the territory, with treasures hiding even in the smallest, most quaint towns.

    Start off in Tarquinia, where the largest necropolis in the area is located. Upon arrival, explore the necropolis with more than 6,000 Etruscan tombs that completely cover the hill of Monterozzi. 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 people for whom they were built. They are a fitting symbol of their high social status.

    But Tarquinia is even more than that. It hosts invaluable archaeological artifacts and medieval remains, as well as a wide variety of natural features. In the immediate vicinity of the town, you will find the seashore, the natural countryside of the Maremma, and the mountains of Tolfa and Cimini with its view from its walls takes in Argentario and the island of Giglio.

    Next, continue your trip to Cerveteri. Here, the necropolis is located inside a tumuli, or burial mound, partly cut into the rock. It is filled with luxury goods made of precious metals, such as tableware, razors, buckles, jewelry and ornate vases. The interiors are composed of multiple rooms and coffered ceilings. Cerveteri is largely unspoiled, and ideal for visitors who want to enjoy long walks in a natural setting. The territory is rich with iron, making the sand black, which makes it attractive to visitors each summer. Enjoy the intimate connection between nature and history.

    Upon completion of your visit, return to your hotel in Rome.
