  • Don't go crazy for the museums of prehistory, but Sunday is free and it is connected to the Ethnological Museum that interested me. In any case it only costs €2, and wanting to pass municipal museums usually by €6 x 3 days (see the picture) I visited very quickly, so I couldn't give it a true judgment, nothing that I have hit in particular, but perhaps these other museums you must read , watch, match. Has a nice section on money. with coins, banconate (rare, with amounts "absurd") a nice cash register etc if you have time please let us jump, that money is particular:-) Highly recommended the bar inside, where you eat/drink really with a few euros in a beautiful leafy courtyard.

  • Discovered that many museums open to the public free of charge, I spent Sunday, dedicating it to several museums. This offers a glimpse of prehistoric times starting from coins coming to the vessels. It wasn't much fun but if interested in the genre I would highly

  • I had a great time here even though not all of the information was available in English. There's lots of interesting ceramic, stone and bone exhibits.  more »
