  • Beautiful old church, with very minimal decoration but that is what makes it so beautiful and awe-inspiring. It's free, and you are done within 10 minutes, but those 10 minutes couldn't be better spen...  more »

  • Tarquinia is an old and charming town of Etruscan origin. It is well positioned on a hill of the Lazio maremma, in the province of Vitarbo, which is about 40 minutes. It is easy to reach from Rome and Civitavecchia. Entering through the front door of Tarquinia, you are immediately in Cavour square, surrounded by numerous historic buildings, museums, monuments and churches. Walking through the old town, feels like stepping back in time. You will be fascinated in front of Palazzo Vitelleschi and the Etruscan Museum. In front of the Town Hall, the churches of Santa Margherita and Martin, the San Pancrazio and the Church and convent of San Francisco. Of course these sites are worth a visit. Not to be forgotten, outside the historic center, but a walk up to the walls of the village, the Church of Santa Maria. It is a Romanesque church, now Deconsecrated, used only for certain events and open only on weekends. It is flanked by the impressive Tower of Matilda of Canossa and at night is lit so very impressive. From the back you can admire a beautiful view over the Valley and the sea nearby which is well worth a visit.
