Discover the secrets of the Etruscans

The Cerveteri Necropolis is the most imposing in all Etruria and one of the most magnificent in the entire Mediterranean basin. You can get lost as you wander the streets of this “city of the dead”, enter its houses and take a trip back in time, aided by the multimedia installations that use audiovisual projections, virtual reconstructions, sound and light effects and 3D videos to show you how the tombs would have looked more than two thousand years ago, reproducing the atmospheres of the day and the treasures they conceal.

The National Museum of Cerveteri, home to numerous Etruscan artefacts, including the celebrated Sarcophagus of the Spouses, is a world leader for its use of technology, as applied in the innovative “touch on glass” project: you touch a glass display case and archaeological artefacts thousands of years old come back to life to tell you about the history, anecdotes and secrets of the mysterious world of the Etruscans. The project puts Cerveteri up there at the top of the world’s hi-tech archaeological site rankings.

The Tarquinia Necropolis has been described as “the first chapter in the history of great Italian painting ”for its exceptional painted tombs adorned with scenes of human life: huntsmen, fishermen, musicians, dancers, jugglers and athletes.

Housed in the fifteenth-century Palazzo Vitelleschi, the National Archaeological Museum of Tarquinia, hosts an absolutely unparalleled collection, whose pieces include the majestic, evocative Winged Horses.
