Etruscan Necropolis Guided Tour

Etruscans are one of the most fascinating civilization of the Ancient Mediterranean. On Evolved Guide you can book a Etruscan Necropolis Guided Tour and discover with a professional tour guide the most important evidence of Etruscans in Lazio: the Necropolis of Tarquinia and Cerveteri. Prosperous and extremely religious population, the Etruscans reached the highest levels in arts and social organisation and their culture deeply affected Rome. In northern Lazio, from the 8th century BC, Tarquinia and Cerveteri flourished, two of the most important Etruscan metropolies. This area, often underrated, is the ideal place for tourists who are hunting archaeological treasures. Following your private tour guide, you’ll learn many curious and interesting facts about the Etruscans, their society, their dailylife, their religion and costumes. The Necropolis of Tarquinia and Cerveteri host tombs dug into the tuff, real monuments of the landscape testifying the will of aristocratic families to flaunt wealth. The frescoes of Tarquinia and Cerveteri’s tombs reproduce, with vivid colors, glimpses of dailylife in the Etruscan world. In the Necropolis of Banditaccia of Cerveteri tombs are shaped as real houses and are set in the space among roads, small squares and neighbourhoods like in a real town. Here and in the Necropolis of Tarquinia you will admire many painted ones, still intact after 2,600 years, an incredible evidence of the special relationship the Etruscans had with the afterlife. You local expert guide will reveal you the secrets of each tomb! Between the two necropolis, your guide may decide to stop in Santa Severa, a beautiful village of Lazio which today is dominated by a Medieval castle by the sea. Here there was one of the most important trade ports of Etruria, linked to Cerveteri: the ancient Pyrgi with its sanctuary, frequented by Greek and Phoenician merchants. The perfect frame for a lunch break in history!
