What You Can Expect
When you arrive in Tarquinia, your driver will drop you off in a central location so you can explore on your own. Visit the Etruscan museum, where you can see well-preserved sarcophagi (ancient coffins carved from stone) and frescoes from the 6th to 1st centuries BC. Walk to the Etruscan necropolis to see one of the most beautiful and well-preserved tombs of the ancient world. You can also visit the aristocratic Palazzo Vitelleschi, a masterpiece of Gothic-Renaissance architecture.
Next it's on to Tuscania, where your driver will recommend a typical trattoria, where you can enjoy lunch (own expense). Then explore the medieval historical center and see the beautiful Basilica of San Pietro. Standing on the town’s old Etruscan acropolis, the Roman basilica has a 13th-century façade with symbols of the Evangelists.
You will return to the Civitavecchia port in time to re-board your cruise ship.

We booked this trip by mistake but it turned out to be a wonderful adventure that we will never forget. The lunch was to die for. We really enjoyed this trip.
The driver does not do this tour very often so he didn't know much information about the two towns. He did manage to call around and find a wonderful winery for us to,spend some time at. Otherwise, there is probably too much time allowed for these two quaint but delightful towns.
