Escape the crowds in Rome and visit the history-rich town of Tarquina.
We booked a Tarquinia and Tuscania tour thru Italy Tours.
Sail Date: September 2018
We booked a Tarquinia and Tuscania tour thru Italy Tours. EU. This tour was good, but the driver did not speak great English and really acted more like a driver than a tour guide. Wished I booked the Best of Tuscany tour

We visted Etruscan tombs and then the Etruscan museum. The tour guide was from the area and you could tell. She did some explaining and also let us explore on our own. It was a perfect balance. We then headed to a Tuscan farmhouse for wine, local cheese, meat, olive oil and bread. It was a lovely way to round out the morning. Really enjoyed this trip. Read Less

Sail Date: April 2017
Our group of 4 did the Tuscania and Tarquinia tour. The tour director was wonderful and explained a lot as we walked along in each of the villages. They were beautiful and full of history. This tour requires a lot of walking.

Tour of BAGNORREGIO/CIVITA Took NCL's Hilltop Towns tour . ($109) Our guide was Arianna . Bus was good with a female driver , very rare ! Only 18 of us which was great . Interesting group of young Mexican honeymooners , older couple who had done the same cruise 3 years in a row and a military couple with 5 kids . Tuscana was our first stop . Very nice . Drove along a volcanic lake Bolsena . Great views . We stopped in Civita to change buses because ours was too big to travel through town to the drop off . A bit of a wait . And then you get off to walk the path up to Bagnorregio . OMG . They have spent millions trying to shore up this Etruscan treasure from collapse due to erosion . Partially successful so far . No one actually lives there . Everyone comes and goes along with all supplies each day along this narrow path . Room for a half size golf cart . The only disappointment was a more then nasty waitress at Caffe Arianna where we had lunch. We returned for 4 PM . Read Less

We had to be back on board at 3PM so decided to go to Tarquinia. We had signed up for a ship tour, but it was cancelled due to lack of sign ups at the last minute. This proved to be propitious. Taxi driver Michael did not speak English well, but after some back and forth he realized we wanted to go to Tarquinia and not Rome. We arranged a fee of 100 euros I think it was. Our first stop on the way to his cab was an almost hidden espresso bar where we had wonderful cappachinos. On the way to Tarquinia he pointed out the island where the Costa Concordia ran aground. When we got to Tarquinia he directed us to the ancient city walls and waited for us by the Museum. To get there we walked though a street market. We grabbed another coffee with Michael and then hit the museum for 2 hours. Michael then drove us through the old town and then over to the Necropolis where we spent an hour. After that we had a splendid Italian lunch at a restaurant he pointed us to (Piazza D'Erba) and then we went back to Civitavecchia. Michael had a pass, so was able to drop us directly at the ship. Wonderful and memorable day. Read Less
