Overview

Your independent day trip starts as you leave the Civitavecchia port with your private driver and head through the beautiful Latium region on a 30-minute drive to the hill town of Tarquinia, a fascinating ancient town home to many historic and archeological sites. Your driver will tell you about the history of the Etruscan people. Learn how they populated central Italy long before the days of the Romans, and hear how they rose to prosperity and power, and then basically disappeared from history, leaving behind unsolved questions about their origins and culture. Your driver will also give you an overview of attractions and sights you may want to see (entrance fees at own expense).

When you arrive in Tarquinia, your driver will drop you off in a central location so you can explore on your own. Visit the Etruscan museum, where you can see well-preserved sarcophagi (ancient coffins carved from stone) and frescoes from the 6th to 1st centuries BC. Walk to the Etruscan necropolis to see one of the most beautiful and well-preserved tombs of the ancient world. You can also visit the aristocratic Palazzo Vitelleschi, a masterpiece of Gothic-Renaissance architecture.

Next it's on to Tuscania, where your driver will recommend a typical trattoria, where you can enjoy lunch (own expense). Then explore the medieval historical center and see the beautiful Basilica of San Pietro. Standing on the town’s old Etruscan acropolis, the Roman basilica has a 13th-century façade with symbols of the Evangelists.

You will return to the Civitavecchia port in time to re-board your cruise ship.
