An ideal tour for lovers of the history of the ancient and of the Etruscan civilization, which in Tarquinia and Orvieto has left indelible traces and archaeological remains of great interest.
We will discover together the extraordinary capabilities of a civilization that has lived for years in central Italy demonstrating great artistic fervor and considerable talent.
Ancient Etruscan capital and medieval town, archaeological site of international fame and of intense cultural life, the city of Tarquinia rises on a hill, in a panoramic position at 133 meters above sea level.
It houses both the extraordinary Tarquiniense National Archaeological Museum, which is housed in the Vitelleschi palace, a masterpiece of Renaissance architecture, and is the unmissable Etruscan Necropolis which houses the finest and best preserved painted tombs of the ancient world.
Currently, the visit to the pictorial surfaces of some of the most important tombs in the necropolis is accessible to wheelchair users, through the important work of museumization carried out inside the National Archaeological Museum of Tarquinia, following interventions of separation of the paintings, operated during the fifties of the last century.
After some free time, during which you can enjoy a delicious Italian lunch at your leisure, we will leave for Orvieto.
Orvieto is one of the most memorable hill towns in Umbria and is located on a beautiful steep hill made of tuff and volcanic rock. It is precisely the tuff with its reddish color that characterizes the entire city: the monuments, the houses and the medieval alleys.
The historic center is still today entirely perched and set on the cliff and has as its heart the Piazza Duomo.
The Cathedral of Orvieto, among the most significant creations of Italian Gothic architecture, is accessible inside, thanks to the presence of moving platforms, and has an architectural barrier at the entrance (step) easily overcome. Inside the Cathedral there is a platform from the Duomo floor to the transept and it is possible to use a mobile platform to access the two Chapels.
