The city of Rome remains a powerhouse of history, rising along the banks of the Tiber River. The spectacle of the past lines the medieval cobblestone alleyways and adorns the city skyline with marvelous domes, peaked rooftops, elaborate columns, and the glamorous palaces that are eager to lead visitors into the past. Your flight will land a Fiumicino Airport, where your private transfer will greet you upon your arrival and escort you into the bustling heart of the city center. The trickling water of the Trevi Fountain will embody the grandeur of the Baroque era and marvels of the greater city with images of an opulent Oceanus that is framed by the detailed life of the sea.
After settling into the comforts of your luxurious hotel, your guide will meet you in the lobby and lead you to the magnificent acropolis of Tarquinia, which acted as the capital of the Etruscan settlement over two millennia ago. Authentic and unforgettable history will come to life as your guide immerses you into a private world during a private tour around the 3,000-year-old City of the Dead. The Monterozzi necropolis contains 6,000 graves with the oldest dating back to the 7th century BC. The landscape resembles rolling hills but is actually mounds, beneath which stand Etruscan tombs that are decorated with elegant frescoes and signs of luxurious life. The Tom of The Lionesses was constructed in the 4th century BC and consists of a small room beneath a sloped roof with images of flying birds and jumping dolphins as they surround the lively images of the Etruscan aristocracy.
