FULL DESCRIPTION

Learn about the fascinating Etruscan civilization during an instructive and entertaining tour of the Necropolis of Cerveteri. Often referred to as “the city of the dead”, the Necropolis of Cerveteri is an impressive cemetery that has been planned with the same organization as a town. Accompanied by an expert tour guide you’ll learn about the burial habits and culture of the Etruscan civilization. Explore tombs and enjoy an interactive tour which brings a burial ritual to life thanks to audiovisual projections and virtual reconstructions. End your tour in the near town of Ceri and explore this Medieval little village with small cobblestone alleys. Stop for a tasty lunch of fresh local ingredients and try some new recipes. After we will Reach the Necropolis of Tarquinia, a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2004, and visit the archeological remains accompanied by an expert guide who will show you around an incredible number of treasures. The tombs are all cut in the rock and accessible via sloping or stepped corridors. Most of them were made for a single couple and constitute one burial chamber. Explore ancient constructions, apartments and famous painted tombs dated from the 7th century 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-century Tomb of the Lionesses consists of a small chamber with a gabled roof. The painting depicts flying birds and dolphins and scenes from the life of the Etruscan aristocracy. Generally, we start the tour at 9.00 am, with pick-up right at the quayside, so you will find us immediately as you get off the ship.
