  • I've been to the Museum in early August this year. He was visited only the room downstairs. The rest was closed for renovation. But they couldn't do during the winter when there are no tourists and residents have repeatedly visited the Museum?. Is it wrong to even do charge admission. Abroad you pay anywhere. At least they do pay

  • Today I went to Civitavecchia and I went to see the Archeological Museum, barely visible and free! Of 3 floors can be visited, for quite some time, only the room downstairs. On the ground floor you can see the ATHENA PARTHENOS of FIDIA!!!, but the statue, whose head is in Paris at the Louvre, is not protected nor put in place ... too bad!!! The Museum is very clean and the people are very present ... ... we will write to denounce this nonsense!!! Go and see the Museol and visit Civitavecchia. Are to see both the medieval district (near the Cathedral) that the fortress!

  • EX-CE-LLENT! First and foremost it is FREE (tourist may occasionally be asked to contribute with 1 eur donation) It is closed on MOndays. That being said, if you are fond of archaeologu and especially of naval and Roman findings that's the place for you. The museum o is located in a XVIII century, three story building and houses relics from the ancient city of Centumcellae (the town name in the Roman age, see history and Centumcellae) and from the surrounding area. Ground floor: various marble roman heads, one of which representing the young emperor Trajan. One of the finest pieces on this floor is a statue of the Greek God of the Sun Apollo (I century B.C.), discovered in Santa Marinella during the excavation of a roman villa, supposedly the summer residence of the roman jurist Ulpian, and which would indeed reproduce the Colossus of Rhodes. First floor: ceramic and bronze relics from different excavation sites (Civitaveccchia, Tolfa, Allumiere, Luni, Santa Severa), among which some impressing bucchero potteries from the VII-VI century B.C.; several black ceramics from the IV century B.C. and various bronze and golden jewels. Second floor: Villanovan relics such as a biconical urn and a hut one, both from the VII century B.C. The bronzes include many buckles and clasps, several engraved mirrors and one beautiful helmet. A notable presence among the ceramics in exposition is that of red and black-figure vessels, most probably imported from Attica.

  • A little perusal as City Museum, in the city there are better things to see; in a hypothetical route would put him among the last places to visit.
