The Etruscans were ancient Italians who inhabited an area roughly corresponding to modern Tuscany. In many ways, this tour traces their footsteps, starting with a drive to Tarquinia, founded in the 7th century BC, and now known for its magnificent Etruscan burial ground. You will visit the Etruscan Necropolis, the final resting site of Etruscan royalty, and see numerous tombs with colorful paintings, which are of the utmost archaeological importance for the light they shed on the Etruscan civilization. These are the only examples of painted Etruscan tombs in the world. You will also behold an extensive collection of Etruscan artifacts found during excavations of the Necropolis, which are now displayed in the Etruscan National Museum. The museum occupies a 15th century castle and contains sarcophagi, pottery, ivories and votive offerings. For a more modern look at what's produced locally, you will proceed to the Mandoleto Farm House and sample typical farmer's products.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 200 yards of walking over uneven ground and approximately 65 steps to negotiate. This tour is not recommended to wheelchair guests and guests with mobility concerns.
