Archaelogical Museum, Naples: 56 reviews and 117 photos
Even if you only have a short time in Naples try not to miss this museum.
The mosaics and other treasures from Pompeii and Herculaneum make a wonderful introduction to the sites. They are preserved here in all there glory. Some of the mosaics consist of pieces barely more that 1mm and are breathtaking.
Don't miss the extensive model of Pompeii started in 1861. It is so detailed that it is an important historical record in itself.
Also of note are the Farnese sculptures, though sadly the famous Hercules was under wraps for my visit due to restoration of the room. I also admired the deeply carved sarcophagi on the ground floor.
A real treat.
Address: Piazza Museo 19
Directions: Metro - Museo, Cavour and Dante are also quite close.
