    The castle is beautiful but not immaculately maintained internal parts (courtyard, stairs ...), the exposure is not overwhelming and the path is fairly intuitive. Honestly I visited on the surface due to the heat ... the Council creating audio guides. The cost is competitive, especially if you do the combined ticket with the archaeological area and the castle of melfi.

    The Museum is housed in the beautiful castle built in the 15th century by Duke Pirro del Balzo on the occasion of his marriage to the daughter of Prince Orsini of Taranto. The Castle has a rectangular plan whose corners are four cylindrical towers. Later on the inside there is a Renaissance Loggia on the main floor, a deep ditch and an interior courtyard. The Museum is housed in the basement Gallery. The exhibits range from Roman to medieval times of the city and its hinterland. Interesting coin finds from the period in which brand had a Vein, votive and funerary and those ceramic ones including the famous askos Carr.

    Small Museum organized, divided into two parts, one on prehistoric finds unearthed in the area, the other in Roman history. Interesting

  • Venosa, the city that was the birthplace of the Poet Horace, is rich in important archaeological finds of pre-Roman, Roman and medieval times, near which is crossed by the "regina viarum" (the Via Appia). Valuable is his old village, as well as the Cathedral of Sant'Andrea with its imposing Bell Tower, the casa di Orazio Flacco and, really, so much more, all kept in "very good shape". The Church of the Holy Trinity, situated within the area of the Archaeological Park, where you can admire the baths and the amphitheatre. It's a small town exquisitely attractive, as well as interesting, from "taste" at least for a weekend.
