  • We were looking for someplace that would explain Trieste's interesting history since Roman times, but this museum stops at Roman times. It was not obvious from what I read online. 
  • The Museum consists of a series of collections (Greek and Roman sculpture, Taranto, Egyptian) and-Roman finds from sites not far from Trieste. Among the most interesting pieces include silver rhyton, the large Greek vase in the middle of the room (it is by a famous author, immediately recognizable by the great naturalness of his figures). Rich variety of marble and stone material on the outside, not only classic but also post-medieval age (for example 18th century friezes from a Roman district now demolished) and some Jewish tombstones and Turks.
