Tuscia’s origins are very ancient and find proof in archeological finds dating back to the protovillanovian and villanovian period (X-VIII centuries B.C.), passing through the Etruscans (VIII – I centuries B.C.), then forward to the ancient Romans and the middle ages which embellished our little towns with magnificent architecture. There are innumerable sites to be visited but when forced to choose how to advise our guests as to where to find the maximum evidence of the Etruscan culture, we would certainly suggest Tuscania, the ancient city of Vulci and the Castle-museum of La Badia, Tarquinia (the foremost centre with Etruscan tombs, some of them also painted) with the extremely well-provided Palazzo Vitelleschi Museum and, on the coast, the remains of the Etruscan port antica Gravisca - VI century B.C. Then Norchia, travelling forward along the return route, with its monumental Etruscan necropolis interred in the tufa rock with impressive architurectural magnificence.
