Tarquinia is only an hour northwest of Rome on Italy's railroad system, Trenitalia. It is suitable for a day trip by train or car, or for a visit of a night or two.

As close as Tarquinia is to Rome, it is another world. Tarquinia's world is the world of honest, everyday. small-town Italy. In Tarquinia, the pace is serene and the experience real. You may be a visitor, but you feel like a Tarquinian, not like a walking wallet in amongst Rome's tourism hordes.
