Lots to see in this museum. Reasonably priced. Unfortunately very little has English explanation. Some rooms have one sheet of English explanation. Some rooms have none.

Rooms decorated in Roman or Etruscan style, a Roman amphitheater, ceramic and glass artifacts and statues, coins and many other antiquities are here. I wish there had been more information, though they did have informational sheets in multiple languages.

The archaeological museum is built into the structure of the Roman amphitheatre. Inside there is a great range of exhibits from Etruscan and Roman times. It's not well organised or documented in English, but contains a wealth of cultural heritage. The shop sells gold jewellery...More
