Tour description

A guided tour of the fascinating Necropolis of Cerveteri: the Etruscan tombs.

The history of the Etruscans is unkown to most people, but this ancient civilzation harboured technological and cultural advances which played a fundamental role in the genesis of the Roman Empire. Before the Rise of the Romans, the Etruscans were the true rulers of much of Italy. Ferocious warriors, but also lovers of art, the Etruscans built stunning structures and well-fortified towns. Their tombs were built to imitate their daily life, and thus give a very vivid impression of how these people lived more than 2,000 years ago.

Discover the ancestors of Rome, the Etruscans, and their Necropolis in Cerveteri. Necropolis literally means city of the dead, and these tombs do give the impression of a little city. They contain instruments, tools, jewels, arms, stuccoes and frescoes. Cerveteri was an important center for the Etruscans and this area has been richly and heavily populate since 9th century BC. It was a major center for trade and commerce.

The Etruscans are known for their artistic refinement, luxurious life-style and advanced engineering. The Etruscan city is long gone but their huge cemetery remains as was its aim!

As well as seeing the tombs there will also be a visit to the National Museum to discover more about how the Etruscans lived.
