  • Visit Perugiu and overlook the archaeological museum is simply unthinkable. After all, the city of Perugia was established Etrskov. The nation that gave their life so much knowledge and expertise, that of ancient Rome made a superpower. The Etruscans were skilled craftsmen, stonemasons, zlatotepci. Had a wonderful jewelry, produced weapons, tkali substances, they built the road. Did you know that the Etruscans were the first they knew to do dental bridges? Made from gold. They were kind of the culture, but their origins many do not know, it is believed that they came from somewhere in the region of Turkey. Its buried people into massive sarcophagi of marble and show the image of the dead. Objects in the graves indicate a highly branched international contacts. Some of the items have proven dead fenický and Egyptian origin. Their houses have built of stone and brick. They were the first builders of the arches, which are used in the construction of aqueducts. In particular, the maliarskym were his art. Everything you see in this an interesting archaeological museum .... not in the heart of the city, but do not be discouraged.

  • A short walk from the Centre of Perugia, this museum has many archaeological remains mainly the Etruscans. Unfortunately there is an audio guide but with only 5 euro entrance fee can not be expected.

  • I advise you to visit this site. Especially those who are interested in ancient history and mythology! The people, by the way, was very little.

Finds of diamonds of Elce are uniquely beautiful. Fun and interesting exhibition of amulenti (a vast collection is the result of a donation). Fascinating collection of gems, exciting the cippus of Perugia. Icing on the torta...il Museum is situated in the former convent of the Church of san domenico. A unique wonder!

  • It would be much more interesting if it had more things in English, the big part of the explanation was only in Italian
