A tour dedicated to follow the footsteps of the ancient Etruscan civilisation. One of the most important population of Italy before the expansion of Rome. The testimony of the archaeology of the Etruscan are still present at Taquinia and at Orvieto.
Together we will discover the attraction of a civilisation that for centuries has dominated the centre of Italy and who have so much influenced the roman way before the conquest of Veio by the hands of the Romans around 395 A.c.
The ancient capital of the Etruscan empire and mediaeval citadel, location of a rich archaeology that is renown across the globe is the city of Tarquinia of which is located at 133 meters above the sea level.
The City hosts the extraordinary “Museum Archeologic National Tarquinienese” with its hub inside the “Palazzo Vitelleschi” which is a masterpiece of renascence architecture. You can’t miss the opportunity to visit the Necropolis Etrusca that hosts the tombs, which to this day are extremely well preserved.
The Necropoli is easily accessible by wheel chair, thanks to the important installation of services inside the museum of Archeologic National di Tarquinia.
After a relaxing break where you will experience an authentic Italian lunch will then head to Orvieto.
Orivieto is one of the most beautiful cities that the region of Umbria has to offer where the city was built against the volcanic rock. With its vibrant reddish natural rock colour that covers the entire city from its buildings to its sculptures is a must see.
To this very day the historic town can be admired by its stone buildings and at its centre the “Piazza Del Duomo” has the centre stage with its architecture of gothic Italian. The Cathedral, dedicated to Santa Maria Assunta, is accessible inside, thanks to the presence of movable platforms and a single step, easily overcome, at the entrance. Inside the Duomo there is a platform from the ground floor to the transept and it is possible to use a mobile platform to access the two Chapels.
