The National Archaeological Museum of Naples, one of the first of Europe, was built in a monumental building from the late Eighteenth and early Nineteenth century. It provides the richest and most valuable collection of works of art and handworks of archaeological interest in Italy . Charles of Bourbon placed in this palace the Farnese collection inherited from his mother Elizabeth, to which were added the finds of towns and villas buried by Vesuvius in 79 AD.
We will visit the many thematic sections, with frescoes, mosaics, jewels and everyday objects found in different sites of the Vesuvian area. You can also admire the wonderful collection of classical sculpture, most of which are Roman copies of original Greeks sculptures, as well as the famous Farnese sculptures.
