ART & CULTURE

The area known as the Tuscia, just north of Rome, is full of archaeological and historical sites, in a marvellous natural setting. Relatively unknown, this area cries out to be explored! Four important Etruscan sites: Vulci, Tarquinia, Cerveteri and Veio; mediaeval towns such as Tuscania, Viterbo and Bracciano; Rennaissance parks and palaces, such as Caprarola, Bomarzo and Villa Lante. Not to mention the famous hot springs of Viterbo and Stigliano.
Our Art & Culture packages offer you a unique opportunity to become familiar with this ancient Mediterranean civilisation linked to the classic Greek and Egyptian worlds. A huge influence on ancient Roman culture...

 

Cerveteri

     

Cerveteri

Cerveteri: La Banditaccia

Cerveteri has the second largest necropolis in the world (second only to the Valley of the Kings in Egypt). Some 450 hectares (virtually the whole of the town) is dotted with archaeological sites. The most significant is the monumental necropolis of La Banditaccia, with around two thousand tombs crowded into just 12 hectares: a real “city of the dead”...

Palazzo Vitelleschi, Tarquinia

Tarquinia

Santa Madonna di Valverde, Tarquinia

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Tarquinia is famous for its exceptionally richly decorated Etruscan tombs at the Necropolis of Monterozzi and its excellent Etruscan Museum in Palazzo Vitelleschi. An area with 3,000 years of history: from the enigmatic ruins of ancient Civita overlooking the valley down to the sea, to the mediaeval town with its walls, alleys and towers...

Veio: Portonaccio

Veio

Veio: Portonaccio

The southernmost city of Etruria, the land of the Etruscans, Vejo was famous for its choroplastics, i.e. stone and terracotta sculptures used to decorate roofs. The most famous is the statue of Apollo of Veio, attributed to the only Etruscan artist whose name we know: Vulca. Remains of the town and necropolis are scattered across a wide area...

Viterbo

Viterbo

Viterbo: San Pellegrino

An incredibly charming and unspoilt city, with its squares, alleys, palaces, fountains, antique shops and craft workshops in the wonderful mediaeval quarter of San Pellegrino (13th Century). The local spas have been popular since Roman times: their sulphuric waters have been appreciated by emperors, kings, popes, writers, artists and poets, including Dante. Viterbo is also famous for the Macchina di Santa Rosa, a towering baldachin carried in procession by 80 porters, 30 meters high and weighing 5 tons...

Grand Hotel Stigliano

 

Stigliano

Canale Monterano

The thermal waters of Stigliano (36 – 58°C) still retain all the beneficial and healing properties the Etruscans knew so well and which the Roman writer Pliny the Elder described in his Naturalis Historia (1st Century AD). Known locally as Bagnarello, the spring is located inside a beautiful park a short distance from the hotel. The spa complex - Spa Termale “Il Bagnarello” - has recently undergone major renovation, with extensions to the original 18th century building....
