Tarquinia alone offers an underground picture gallery dating from the Orientalising Period (late 7th century BC) to the end of the Roman Republican period (mid-1st century BC), which reveals that there was a flourishing and uninterrupted painting tradition in the city. This extensive heritage, not only artistic but also historical, represents a glimpse into the daily life of the Etruscans and has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2004.
