Civitavecchia: Etruscopolis Underground City

1. Civitavecchia: Etruscopolis Underground City

Meet your driver and then travel 20 minutes to Tarquinia, the capital of the Etruscans. An ancient civilization with their own culture and language, the Etruscans were an early adversary of Rome and were ultimately assimilated into the kingdom of Rome. Within the underground city of Etruscopolis however, the ways of this ancient people are once again brought back to life. This historic site contains a museum of recreated artifacts, which were lovingly crafted by the artist Omero, who is known as “the last of the Etruscans.” See tombs, homes, objects, and scenes of daily life. Understand Etruscan culture through objects as well as intricate dioramas. Explore an underground Etruscan quarry from the 4th-century BC which spans 15,000 square meters. Journey into the past, and see recreations of Etruscan homes. See what life was like in a time before the Romans had even conquered all of Italy. Afterward, have lunch at a typical trattoria in Tarquinia’s historic center.
