For anyone who loves ancient history this necropolis is amazing. Not much left exists of the Etruscan civilization and so this rather large complex of buildings and tombs is really fantastic. You can also have a great view of the sea and of Lazio's landscape....More

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.
