The Museo Lapidario Maffeiano is one of the oldest public museums in Europe. It contains an excellent collection of stone carvings and inscriptions - mostly Greek, Etruscan, and Roman - which are housed both indoors and in a lovely courtyard.

If you have the Verona Museum card, then it's worth stopping by here if you have spare time, but otherwise, it isn't worth the entrance fee at all. It's a VERY big building, yet there are only two very small rooms open, both containing a...More

Very peculiar museum with lots of grave stones , most of them before Christ. Weird on first site but then again intersting and beautiful on second sight. In the catalog you can buy for 1 euro lots of information. Visit for an hour, not longer

This is a modest museum consisting of mostly Greek and Roman sculptures. There are two floors and a courtyard. It might not be to everyone's taste but I enjoyed it. A lot of the stones were funerary plaques or urns. Most were figural but some...More
