Perhaps the best collection of Romnan and early Christian antiquities we`ve seen outside Rome itself. Quiet and uncluttered. The stele and sarcophagi were wonderful.

Overall this museum has an interesting and remarkable collection of historic artefacts. The Roman statues and sarcophaguses were the most impressive, some things could have done with more information/translation however. Very pleasant outside area with benches and relatively inexpensive too.

We walked here from the Old city (it wasn't that far) and had no problem finding it and enjoying ourselves. There were very few people here when we visited so it made it a nice respite from the tour groups in town. If you're in...More
