Visit the Archeological Museum of Naples
2.5 hours guided tour of one of the most important and rich archeological museums in the world, containing unique treasures.
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.
The Museum is also the home of a number of other historical treasures such as the ones founded during excavations of the Ancient cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Prepare yourself to encounter a richness of cultural treasures on this tour. You will see the famous sculptures of the Farnese Bull and Atlas, and the colorful mosaics of the battle between Darius and Alexander.
You will touch precious parts of rich cultural heritage such as 2000 year old frescoes originating from the houses of Pompeii, Stabia and other ancient towns which ceased to exist due to Vesuvius eruption in 79 AD. You will be charmed by the diversity of artifacts which can be seen as part of the general tour of the museum which we provide.
We can also focus on a specific historical topic and shape our tour around your areas of interest. In this respect, we would usually recommend a mix of activities such as a visit to the museum to be accompanied by a visit to the ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Not only would this give you great pleasure but also provide you with a complete experience to help you understand the ancient culture of Roman times.
