  • Fascinating and very well displayed. You have to go in the exhibition in a small guided group. Our guide today was excellent, spoke excellent English and was very informative. Couldn't recommend highly enough and a hidden Position gem.
  • Amazing, totally worth 30 minutes of your time: short but with very fine exhibits. Nice and highly competent guide. Don't miss it when in Positano, we took our kids and they enjoyed it.
  • What an interesting place with ruins from many centuries and a good guided tour. I did not know to expect, but was so surprised to see the beautiful Roman wall paintings. Yes, it is just one Roman room, but amazing and so nicely presented. And besides that the later ruins of the early church and seats for the dead people. I enjoyed it very much. It is also interesting to see how far down the ruins go. There was a digital timeline for the excavation - is it possible to see that film(?) online somewhere?
  • Unbelievable. The M.A.R. museum offers tours that include two crypts under the main church, and the remains of a Roman Villa under the crypt. The crypts are very cool - the villa is unbelievable. Currently only one room of the villa has been excavated, but that includes two walls with the most spectacularly preserved frescos - way better than any of the walls in Pompeii. The details are so well preserved that there are still plaster reliefs of cherubs, sea horses, etc. on the walls. It was stunning. The whole tour is absolutely worthwhile - our tour guide was great and knew a lot about the site. She said they're currently working on excavating other sites in the vicinity - hopefully that's successful! Either way this is a can't-miss stop in Positano. The tour was quick, about 20 minutes, and worth every penny.
  • A place that you can live without. For the same fare (15€!!!) you could visit ruins of Pompeii. Two walls of a Roman villa are the only interesting things you will see, the rest is rubbish to justify the expensive fare. If I could, I'd recommend you to stay away from this pseudo-museum.
