Tuscia is the historic name for the beautiful land of the Etruscans. You will be bewitched by the unaltered Etruscan charm and beauty that the Tuscia area preserves, all throughout the territory, with treasures hiding even in the smallest, most quaint towns.

Start off in Tarquinia, where the largest necropolis in the area is located. Upon arrival, explore the necropolis with more than 6,000 Etruscan tombs that completely cover the hill of Monterozzi. Adorned with scenes of human life that include hunters, fishermen, musicians, dancers, jugglers, and athletes, the painted tombs illustrate the wealth and power of the people for whom they were built. They are a fitting symbol of their high social status.

But Tarquinia is even more than that. It hosts invaluable archaeological artifacts and medieval remains, as well as a wide variety of natural features. In the immediate vicinity of the town, you will find the seashore, the natural countryside of the Maremma, and the mountains of Tolfa and Cimini with its view from its walls takes in Argentario and the island of Giglio.

Next, continue your trip to Cerveteri. Here, the necropolis is located inside a tumuli, or burial mound, partly cut into the rock. It is filled with luxury goods made of precious metals, such as tableware, razors, buckles, jewelry and ornate vases. The interiors are composed of multiple rooms and coffered ceilings. Cerveteri is largely unspoiled, and ideal for visitors who want to enjoy long walks in a natural setting. The territory is rich with iron, making the sand black, which makes it attractive to visitors each summer. Enjoy the intimate connection between nature and history.

Upon completion of your visit, return to your hotel in Rome.

Small group ensures personal service
Meet your guide in Piazza Farnese, central Rome, and then set off on your 3.5-hour food walking tour around the city. Like all Italians, Romans love to eat, so your expert local guide is well placed to introduce you to Rome’s favorite eateries.

First stop is Campo de’ Fiori to explore its famous food market – popular with locals and tourists alike. Browse the heaving market stalls with your guide, admiring artistically arranged stands of vegetables, cheeses and meats, while soaking up the market’s friendly ambiance. Your guide will introduce you to some of the traders here, who’ll happily let you sample some of their high-quality offerings.

A large concentration of the capital’s restaurants and bars are found in the picturesque cobblestone streets of Trastevere – a vibrant neighborhood where bustling eateries spill outside into its pretty piazzas. On a stroll through this eclectic end of town, your guide will show off some of the local’s firm favorites — sample a classic Roman pasta dish inside a top restaurant and then stop at a café to try out the best pizza bianca (tomato-free pizza) in town. Taste fresh mozzarella with locally cured salami, and then stop at Fata Margana gelaterie for an artisan gelato – the Italian’s far superior answer to ice cream!

Continue your tour through Rome’s Jewish Ghetto, an equally bohemian neighborhood — just south of the city’s historic center. Hunt out the ghetto’s most popular delicatessens and grocery stores that are peppered throughout the streets, sandwiched between interesting artisan studios and vintage shops. Try suppli – every Roman’s favorite fried risotto ball – and then sample some of the staples of Italian Jewish cuisine, like fried artichokes and codfish in Piazza della Cinque Scole.

After discovering the best foodie haunts around Trastevere, Campo de’ Fiori and the Jewish Ghetto, your tour ends in San Cosimato Square (Trastevere).
