Museo Nazionale Tarquiniense Reviews
Premesso che già quasi solo il palazzo Vanvitelli meriterebbe la visita, qui si entra in un regno incantato dove gli etruschi, conosciuti a scuola come grezzi abitanti di Lazio e Toscana, si dimostran... more »Given that already almost only the Vanvitelli palace would merit the visit, here we enter an enchanted kingdom where the Etruscans, known at school as rough inhabitants of Lazio and Tuscany, prove instead to a civilization that already several centuries before our era has produced real masterpieces, still present today, in goldsmith's art, in sculpture, in pottery... An instructive dive into the past that gives us a completely different picture of their life and civilization. An absolutely instructive and never boring visit.
Esaustivo sullo sviluppo della statuaria etrusca dalle origini villanoviane fino all’impero romano con una serie di sarcofagi di grande qualita’, cavalli alati del tempio, e sacrificio del toro cruent... more »Exhaustive on the development of Etruscan statuary from the Villanovian origins to the Roman Empire with a series of high quality sarcophagi, winged horses of the temple, and sacrifice of the bloody bull with scorpion attached to the testicles. The terracotta sector is also of great quality, with great Greek influence. Several tombs of the nearby necropolis frescoed and reconstructed in life. Lacks air conditioning and in the middle of August maybe it would take
This medieval town has been revived and now boasts accommodations, restaurants and shops. Be sure to check out the amazing views from the east wall. Well worth the visit.
I loved this small quiet museum full of ancient treasures. The expositions are unic, especially well preserved Etruscan tombs. I was impressed by collection of ceramics . There are not so many tourists there so you can fully enjoy the atmosphere of history and make interesting photos. I did some with my travel doll and local staff was helpful and friendly
