National Archaeological Museum of Naples

Piazza Museo, 19 - Tel. 081.4422149 - Sito web:

It is the most ancient and important archaeological museum in Europe; it can boast the richest and valuable heritage of archaeological works of art and artefacts in Italy. The collections are displayed on the ground floor, the basement, mezzanine and main floor. On the ground floor, you will find the Greekroman marble sculptures; most of them Classic and Hellenistic Age copies, that are often the only ones of now lost originals. They come from several sites: First of all from the Farnese collection and then from several excavations Toro Farnese is of remarkable importance. In the basement, there are the epigraphic section and the Egyptian section. On the main floor, we start from Salone della Meridiana that originally was to host the Bourbon library named after the sundial drawn on the floor: Here the great Atlante Farnese is kept. From Salone della Meridiana you can go to the Frescoes collection leading to the rooms dedicated to Villa dei Papiri, the sumptuous Pisoni house in Herculaneum from which sculptures, bronzes and the famous papyruses with Greek texts come and are now kept at the National Library.
