  • National Archaeological Museum of Athens, unfortunately, today you can visit only the ground floor, where the stone artifacts, because the upper floors are closed. Too bad! Given the large number of cruise passengers who, for the past several years, landed at the port of Civitavecchia! In addition to beautiful exhibits, the small museum, housed in the building of the former papal custom houses, it has the virtue of being designed by architect Franco museografo Minissi, Viterbo, one of the largest birth experts (among his works include Etruscan Museum of Villa Giulia, Piazza Armerina, Gela, Agrigento, the walls of the drying room of San Michele in Rome , the Museum of Viterbo, etc.). If the customs of Civitavecchia there had been even in Museum of Stendhal, maybe the French Consul would have bored nonetheless in the small port town (though, incidentally, was bored in Rome!). Admission free; Monday closed.

  • Small and insipid Museum. His visit is justified if you've all looked in Civitavecchia and don't know what to do. Frankly boring.

  • 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.

  • works great. A day at the Museum is always advisable

  • 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.
