Tarquinia is a town in Lazio, Italy. At first site it looks like a miniature version of San Gimignano with its medieval towers but the main reason for visiting is that it has fascinating Etruscan tombs with wall paintings (UNESCO World Heritage Site), as well as a good museum on the Etruscans.

Get in

Trains run from Rome (mostly Roma Termini) and take about 1½-2 hr, cost about €7 each way. Buses also run to and from nearby cities.

By car from Rome, take the Autostrada that runs northwest along the coast in the direction of Civitavecchia. Tarquinia is not too far after the end of the Autostrada at Civitavecchia but take care as the road is a popular stretch for the police to operate speed traps and catch you for overtaking illegally.

Get around

There's a local bus to the necropolis.


  • 1 The Etruscan Museum (in the Palazzo Vitelleschi in the main city square, close to parking areas). It is said to be the best Etruscan museum in Italy outside Rome.  
  • 2 The Etruscan necropolis. At first sight, you may well be disappointed. You only see a barren piece of land with what look like workers' huts on a building site. However, each covers a set of steps going down to a tomb and you can turn on a light to see through the glass. Each tomb has a painting. Some are well preserved: others less so but when you consider that the paintings are more than 2,500 years old it is quite an amazing experience. Some of the better wall paintings have been removed to museums; if you cannot get to Tarquinia do not miss Rome's Etruscan Museum at Villa Giulia (Rome/North_Center).
