Tarquinia – a brief guide

Toni Pike

A hilltop town with Etruscan tombs near Rome

Tarquinia is an enchanting walled town with an Etruscan necropolis and impressive museum. For cruise passengers visiting Civitavecchia, it’s a delightful alternative to a day in Rome.

Transport is easy

From Civitavecchia: catch a local bus from the stop across the road from the San Francesco d’Assisi Cathedral in the town centre. Purchase bus tickets from the nearby kiosk before you board. The bus ride takes 30 minutes through pleasant countryside and passengers are dropped just outside the town wall at the entrance to the old town.

From Rome: catch a train to Tarquinia and then a local bus to the top of the hill.
