"In the museum 1.....the mosaics" Naples Travelogue by leics

Naples Travel Guide: 1,425 reviews and 3,916 photos

Naples Archaeological Museum was undergoing substantial 'works' when I visited. Many of its galleries were closed. But...

...it still contained some of the most wonderful ancient artefacts i have seen and was worth twice the 6.50 euro entrance fee.

Having only visited the ancient sites themselves I simply had not realised the sheer wealth and wonderful skill which existed. The best, of course, were quickly removed from the site as it was excavated. In earlier times many found their way into private hands and I am not sure that, even now, all those wonderful things are back in public ownership.

But many private collections have been reclaimed, and many (by no means all) of the ancient sites' most wonderful things are displayed in this museum.

It is simply unmissable, for the sculpture and the mosaics alone.
