Tarquinia @ Italian Village Vacation

Guests Impressions

"My husband and I began our honeymoon by staying 5 nights at Casa Verde in Castel Cellesi. We loved the whole experience. The house was perfect for our needs with full kitchen, including cooking utensils, 2 bathrooms ans a bedroom with a beautiful view of the valley. Eddie was very friendly, helpful, informative and accessible. He gave us a map and a full explanation of all the nearby sights worth visiting. With our rental car, we visited Viterbo, Orvieto, La Civita, Bolsena and montefiascone. All towns were unique and interesting. The food and wine were incredible. We would highly recommend Castel Cellesi to anyone looking for a relaxing experience that is a little bit off the beaten path."

Tarquinia landscapeTarquinia, situated 90 Km. North of Rome and 6 km. from the seashore, was founded (according to the tradition) by Tarconte in the XIII or XII century b.C. It was one of the most important and most prosperous centres of the Etruscan civilization and still today can boast one of the largest collections of Etruscan exhibits coming either from Tarquinia and the surrounding area or from the famous Monterozzi Necropolis (see the National Museum of Archeology housed in the Vitelleschi Palace, an outstanding Gothic-Renaissance building).

Town of TarquiniaTarquinia is exceptionally rich in chamber tombs with paintings that fully display the painting technique used by the Etruscan people from the VI to the II century B.C. (Tomb of the bulls, Tomb of Hunting and Fishing, Tomb of Jugglers, Tomb of Leopard etc.) Also the medieval Tarquinia (the ancient Corneto) is extremely remarkable: the historic centre is still encircled by large parts of the town wall symbolically represented by the high tower facing the Church of Santa Maria in Castello. The city proudly displays many other wonderful Romanesque churches along with the grandiose building of the Town Hall.
