This was such a great museum, and so easy to get to wherever you are in Italy. The collection of sculptures are really impressive, and our visit was very enjoyable. The entry fees were very reasonable as well. I would highly recommend a visit.

It is a nice museum but nothing out of the ordinary. Your opinion might depend on the museums you have seen before this one.

The museum was one of the best ones as there were absolutely no crowds and loads to see. It was really amazing and we all enjoyed it and will definitely come back.

This museum specialises in antiquities. Lots of busts and other statues, frescoes and the like. It's bigger than in looks and has a lovely courtyard at the centre of the complex. There are a few floors with a large number of small rooms full of...More
