  • A spacious museum with an extensive collection. Beautiful and educational and posted with explanations in English and Italian. The collection covers the whole antiquity. From the very first finds of hunters and gatherers, via Greek and Roman finds and temple remains to the early Christian time. In the basement with a very extensive coins and jewelry collection.
