  • Many items in English. Lots of clay faces. The pots are the best part. Not essential to see, and difficult to get to cause the bus doesn't stop there. Not a lot of parking. Typical Italian poor planning. Walking around the outside more interesting than the inside.
  • Fascinating to see such exceptional pieces actually excavated from the area. The exhibition was quite large with the majority having good English explanations
