Etruscan Necropolises of Tarquinia

Local nameNecropoli dei Monterozzi
LocationTarquinia, Italy

Tarquinia, formerly Corneto, is an old city in the province of Viterbo, Lazio, Italy known chiefly for its ancient Etruscan tombs in the widespread necropoleis or cemeteries which it overlies, for which it was awarded UNESCO World Heritage status.

In 1922 it was renamed after the ancient city of Tarquinii or Tarchna. Although little is visible of the once great wealth and extent of the ancient city, archaeology is increasingly revealing glimpses of past glories.
