  • I think it's the jewel of Syracuse. 50 years building, contains an extraordinary collection of prehistoric, sicani and Greeks in western Sicily. Were collected the most beautiful finds of tombs and buildings found by archelogi starting from 800. Some pieces are of incomparable beauty. Huge collection of attic vases, antefixes and decorations of sacred buildings. Significant Hellenistic Roman collection with some beautiful statues. Don't miss the VENUS ANADYOMENE ("rising from the waters") and the sarcophagus of ADELFIA. Superlatives. Keep in mind that it takes at least a couple of hours to visit.
