Naples is the home of one the world’s greatest collections of treasures. The Greek-Roman artwork collection which can be found in the National Museum of Naples is a true testimony of the rich culture of the city.
The National Archaeological Museum itself is seen as another precious historical heritage. It was founded by the King of Naples, Charles VII in the late XVIII century, to preserve highly valuable artwork collections inherited from his ancestors.
