  • Museum Wharf attended for the variety and quality of the exhibits housed therein. Located inside the dwelling place of the great Federico castle when the city of Melfi was capital of Puglia. The place is famous for its beautiful archaeological Venous 20 minutes and birthplace of the great Horace, here also lies a museum which is well worth a visit. From Melfi the reaches Matera in about an hour's drive away.

  • In the castle of Frederick II of Melfi is a National Archaeological Museum where priceless archaeological finds, are collected in different graves found near the territory of Vulture-Melfese. I didn't think there could be a large amount of finds, well exposed and mostly found in excellent condition. You can also admire the sarcophagus of Rapolla, a grave so called because found around the small town located 7 km from Melfi and kept in the Museum of the Castle. Really very nice!

  • the Museum is worth visiting for the charm of the monumental Castle which is preserved in very good ocndizioni for both the curiosity of the rediscovery of traditions and customs of ancient peoples lived in Vulture melfese. exposure of tombs and objects found in the necropolis which let imagine how playing children as armed soldiers and fighters as they tied their tresses women of the era, such as the latter adorned their bodies with jewels, crowns and what were the tools of daily life ... and so much more to see indeed revisit more than once. the Castle also enjoys a convenient location with a wonderful panoramic view of the city of Melfi and on Mount Vulture from which to see maybe the dramatic flight of birds of prey so widespread in this area as the Falcons much loved by Frederick II of Swabia or buzzards. Nature, history and culture for everyone.
