Unfortunately, due to censorship practiced by Italian TA I'm not allowed to go into detail about the bad treatment you will receive from the staff. The collection and grounds are beautiful, but there is no documentation or guidance to help you learn about it. Don't...More

Having visited Tarquinia on a previous trip to Italy this was on my Rome bucket list. It’s a great insight into a civilisation that’s not often talked about. Small finds are exquisite & lots to learn about links to Grecian culture too.

This is one of, if not the, most extensive collection of Etruscan artifacts in the world. Despite its extent, it was still thoroughly labelled and curated so that it was not just a collection of things but artifacts that were able to be educational to...More

Young and well-to-do families are the street flavour
of Parioli. A new kind of Rome, this area is centuries
away from the Renaissance with its pockets of 1930s
palaces, tony boutiques, open-air markets and plenty
of coffee shops. Parioli was built as an enclave for
last century’s haute bourgeois and still represents as
such in 21st century Rome. Need a break? The area has
several great sporting clubs known for tennis and

I'd recommend two hours. This museum has the most diverse and impressive collection of etruscan artifacts in all of Italy. It's the next best thing to actually visiting Cerveteri and Tarquinia. Because it is inside a... More
