Description

An incredible "off the beaten path" trip, out of the normal tourist routes to visit ancient villages where traces of the ancient Etruscans are still evident. A civilization disappeared after a thousand years of its history, absorbed by the Roman one of which it influenced many aspects of political and social life. Still existing in the hidden corners of the Roman countryside you will walk inside the underground tombs richly decorated with reliefs and paintings.

The Etruscan usually starts at 8:00 am. The driver will meet you right under the ship, bearing a sign with your last name.Our tour will take you to discover the most impressive Etruscan ruins still existing by visiting the small town of Tarquinia, where you can walk inside the underground tombs and visit the city museum, the best of its kind. The old town its self is very charming with the narrow streets and the medieval architecture. A second stop will take you to the town of Cerveteri, where you can visit the famous and biggest Etruscan Necropolis in Europe, known all over the world, called Banditaccia which keeps still most of the original frescoes. Other than historical remains you can enjoy the view of the countryside and stop for lunch and a gelato by the Bracciano lake and the famous Orsini family Castle.
On request we can book Lunch with Wine Tasting in a local restaurant located in the ancient village of Ceri. The cost of the Lunch & Wine Tasting and  is not included in the tour. You can pay cash directly at the restaurant.
At 4:00 pm it's time to go back to the port, hoping you enjoyed the day you've spent with us. Your driver will constantly monitor time in order to have you back to the ship by 5:30 pm at the latest.
