Tarquina: the Archaeological Museum

The second floor is characterized by a quadrangular open gallery with a magnificent panoramic view of the city and the surrounding countryside. A group of temperature-controlled rooms contain several original Etruscan tombs which have been reconstructed by stripping the original frescos from the tomb walls and reassembling them. The names of these tombs are Tomb of the Triclinium, Tomb of the Chariots, Tomb of the Olympiad,  and Tomb of the Ship.  The remaining part of the exhibition includes a selection of relics discovered during the course of the excavation work. Those unearthed in the ancient Etruscan city were discovered by the University of Milan while the University of Perugia dug out the exhibits from the site of the Gravisca Emporium.
