  • The Museum was opened in 1991 and is hosted at the Aragonese castle, the archaeological museum displays many relics from different civilizations and historical epochs. Opens with a section on prehistory, in which are preserved interesting examples that run from the lower Paleolithic to the bronze age. The Museum is divided into five sections, which depart from the Roman period to extend to the Norman period. Among the finds far more interesting include the head of Diadumenos (belonging to a statue unfortunately lost, as well as a copy of the Diadumenos of Polykleitos); a fragment of the Tabula Bantina consisting of a bronze slab with carved pieces of legislation the oscan and finally an askos (characteristic jar crushed of Greek origin) with polychrome decoration, tempering sink.

  • The Museum is located inside the castle of Venosa central to the town. Very well maintained, the Museum contains exhibits intact of extraordinary beauty and historical importance. Tickets cost €2.50 per person and includes access to the archaeological site where you can visit the ancient terme, a town dating back to Roman times and the famous "unfinished". You can also buy the ticket at a cost of €4.0 for the visit of the castle of Melfi with his Museum really should not be missed.

  • 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.
