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.

This is one of the greatest example of Etruscan tombs: you can really have an idea about that lost culture. The organization is fine and the facilities help to appreciate these masterpieces and at the same time ensure they are protected. I strongly recommend the...More

This was an exciting visit. There is the history of the tombs at the entrance. The tombs have steps and are not always easy to get in and see.

We arrived after closing time on a Sunday afternoon--and, after expressing our disappointment at missing the opportunity to see the necropolis, a sympathetic staff member gave us a personal guided tour of 8-10 tombs. We will be forever grateful for her accommodation.

I would say there are about 25 different tombs to visit. You descend a flight of steps going underground and then view them through a window on a timed light. You can switch the light on as many times as you like and the window...More

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.

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
