Special Tours Cerveteri and the Ghost Town of Monterano
We are excited to announce the launch of a new special tour, dedicated just to our customers and guests, and that will lead you to discover two pearls just outside Rome: The Necropoli of Cerveteri and the Ghost Town of Monterano.
Set off for an exclusive outdoor experience with your private driver and English-speaking tour guide. Reach your first destination, the archeological area of Cerveteri, where you’ll visit the amazing Etruscan Necropolis. Accompanied by your knowledgeable tour guide you will enter the tombs where the Etruscan population buried their dead.
Thanks to the modern technology and multimedia projections you will discover how those tombs look like at the time of the Etruscans, you’ll find out the colors of ancient vases and urns, and how the ceiling and walls were decorated. We will be spectators of a burial service and hear how the Etruscan language sounded like.
On our way to the area of Monterano we we’ll stop for lunch in one of the typical restaurants in the area to taste local food and products. After lunch we will reach our second destination. Soak up in the fairy-tale atmosphere of the natural Reserve of Monterano. Hectares of green land, caves and threes surround a ghost town built on the rock.
Climbing the little hill, we will admire the ancient Acquedotto and the Castle featuring the Fountain of the Lion by Bernini. Marvel at the ruins of the castle, now part of this beautiful natural landscape. On our way to the top of the hill, we will explore an ancient borgo, where we'll find the ruins of the belfry of the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta.
Going down the hill, marvel at the stunning view of the bloom greenery that surrounds the San Bonaventura Church and another fountain by Bernini.
