A Journey in the shrine that preserves the history of Naples, Pompeii, Herculaneum.


If you haven't been to the Archeological museum, even if you have been to the ruins in Pompeii and Herculaneum, you haven't seen the best of Naples' archeological finds!

Here you'll find some of most famous bronze and marble statues of the Greek-Roman time.

Want to see the biggest sculpture of the ancient time ever found, the Farnese Bull? The museum hosts the famous Hercules Farnese, but you'll also find treasures like the magnificent mosaic of Alexander, incredibly well-preserved frescoes taken from Pompeii's most opulent ancient villas.

How to forget the Egyptian section, with its beautiful and precious mummies and artifacts?

You can't miss it! Call me!

*The tour is available as a Private Shore Excursion from the Port of Naples, Sorrento or Salerno; ask me for a customized tour.
