CCR Day Trip: Tarquinia - April 4, 2020

This event has been postponed.
The CCR's spring outing is going back into ancient history! We'll visit the ancient Etruscan necropolis at Tarquinia, with its stunning sculpted and painted tombs. CCR's expert guide will give us an in-depth understanding of this still rather mysterious ancient culture and the cities it built for its dead. The museum in the medieval town of Tarquinia holds some gorgeous artifacts that reveal the beauty of this ancient people.

After diving into Etruscan culture and history, we'll have an opportunity to taste the products of Etruscan descendants as we head to Etruscaia vineyard. We'll visit the winery as well as have lunch in these lovely surroundings! Lunch will include:

a welcome drink on the roof terrace
a selection of other Etruscaia wines to accompany
"Pappa al Pomodoro" (bread, tomato and basil soup)
a pasta dish with a seasonal vegetable

When: Saturday, April 4, 2020
Transportation and timing: If you are planning to drive to Tarquinia, could you let us know whether you have extra spot in your vehicle for others? Of course, also let us know if you need a ride and we'll try to match you with a driver.
