Absolutely Fantastic!

This tour was a great alternative to a Rome or Civitiveccia tour, particularly if you only have one day. We were picked up in Civitiveccia near the cruise terminal; the guide drove us to Targuinea, answering our many questions as we went. Our first stop was at the Necropolis, an amazing Etrusken burial site with tombs dating 500 - 400 BC, complete with original paintings. Our guided tour continued with a walk through the lovely hilltop town with its historic walls and incredible scenic overlooks. A delicious lunch followed with wine and dishes made from local ingredients. Come hungry! We then visited the archeological museum to see the valuable vases, jewelry and so on found in the ancient tombs. Finally, we were driven back to our port stop in Civitiveccia. What a wonderful and interesting small group tour. You will love this tour...highly recommend.
Highly recommend

We spent a wonderful day with our tour guide, Andrea. He helped us explore this ancient Etruscan site that dates back before the Roman empire. We visited the Necropolis, museum, churches and other historic sites. We were taken to a ristorante near the town hall and treated to a delicious many courses lunch served with wine. This was not booked as a private tour, but we were fortunate to be the only couple to enjoy this day. We highly recommend this as an excursion from the port of Citivecchia.
