  • Absolutely gorgeous. The feminist photo installation is so captivating and the museum has exhibits in Italian and English. Staff are more than helpful (especially if you make an effort to speak Italian 😉)
  • For history lovers this is a excellent museum. Amazing Roman remains of two houses with mosaic floors and many artifacts. Also the Chapel and crypt are not to be missed. Very helpful and friendly staff. Allow 2 hours.
