Archaeological Oasis

Hosting collections of archaeological discoveries from prehistory to medieval times, Museo Archeologico features a large array of Italian artifacts. These include Roman copies of classical Greek sculptures, engraved gems, and Pompeian mosaics. Do not miss the Herculaneum papyri, a series of Greek philosophical texts carbonized by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79, as well as the oldest available portrayal of Atlas from Greek mythology, Farnese Atlas. Also see the discoveries from the Villa dei Papyri, Julius Caesar's father-in-law's villa, where archaeologists discovered over 2,000 scrolls. There are many Italian treasures here that must be seen to be believed.
