  • It's worth a visit, especially on Sundays as it's free. Don't miss the permanent exhibition which consists in the private collection of some amazing pieces of ancient artifacts. This last is a result of buying stuff on the illegal market I suspect, in the 1st half of the 20th century)
  • Worth a quick visit 30-45 min. Their private collection boasts pieces from around the world and from all ages. Very interesting recreations of Roman everyday situations.
