A museum that keeps me engaged
Feb. 2020
I normally lose interest in museums but this one kept me engaged. The layout and information was excellent and it was great to find an app to help and lots of information available in English. It was amazing to learn about the history of this area. The museum isn't huge but then you have the outside area to explore also. This is where the app was really good. By scanning a Qtag on a post I could gets loads of info. We visited on a Saturday so there were no school children and in February there were no crowds and the weather was pleasantly warm for walking around.

Extensive archaeological site
Oct. 2019
This is an amazing place, not least because the ruins are so extensive. We literally found them as we drove along a road so I was surprised there was so little advertised about them locally. A definite visit if you're interested in the history of Puglia

Great insight into Settlement over the centuries
Sep. 2019
Stayed a couple of hours there was so much to see and an excellent museum. Staff very helpful and if you time it right can join one of the free tours that explains some of the sites which stretch over the road. Bit of walking and a sun protection and water recommended particularly in the warmer months

Worth a couple of hours if nearby
Jun. 2019 • Couples
Having seen most of the sights in the Monopoli area we were looking for something to do for a couple of hours and so headed to the Scavi di Egnazia. We weren't expecting much from the photos, but they don't do the excavations justice. We were advised at the ticket office to visit the ruins and the tombs before visiting the museum, so we did just that, starting with the tomb of the pomegranates. The tomb is quite impressive in the fact that it has a moving door and is decorated up high with paintings of pomegranates. From there we headed to the main excavations which were interesting enough and we spent a good half an hour walking around. Unfortunatley you can't visit the section near the sea, which was the bit that we had really hoped to visit, so we headed to the necropolis and the museum. The museum is full of artefacts from the sights but unfortunately most of the information is in Italian only which is not great if you don't speak Italian. The museum itself is air conditioned which is a relief on a hot day. There's also a well priced vending machine if you fancy a cold drink.

Great place to visit and get a better understanding
May 2019 • Solo
Being so used to Romans only it ws great to see some there perspective and get more explanation. I never knew there are typical female amphora/ jugs. Now I do.

And I’m always impressed to see the wagontrails. Especially on the via Traiana as a shortcut for the via Appia.
Absolutely worth a visit.

do not miss
Jun. 2018 • Couples
this place is really worth the effort to get to. The museum where you first arrive is fascinating. you can then visit the grave site and enter one of the graves which is very interesting. you can then visit the the excavations with the roman bath area probably being the most impressive bit. However, the sight has only been partially excavated compared to the huge size of the original city. The staff were very friendly and it was very quiet when we visited. There were only 4 other people there, wonderful!

Great excavations

Amazing insight into the Necropolis, visit the underground tomb, slight extra charge. There is an English audio tour. Most of the exhibits in the museum are explained only in Italian.

For those with imagination
Jun. 2018 • Friends
The ruins/excavation is mostly foundations. Not much in way of buildings to see, but you can see a small Roman (earlier Messapian) village. The museum is modern and well laid out. And has good air conditioning. And good views of the Adriatic :-)

Interesting, not unusual

can be viewed from afar, not actually going into the ruins. Along the seacoast the remains of an ancient Roman settlement.

Well worth a visit
Jul. 2018 • Couples
If you enjoy history and archaeology this is a great place to visit. We anticipated a short visit but ended up spending a few hours as there was plenty to see.

There are several areas of the site to visit; the Roman town, tombs and the acropolis. Access to the acropolis is with a guide and the area overlooks the sea with it's submerged ancient harbour wall. The guide was really interesting and spoke excellent English. The remainder of the site you are free to wander and explore on your own.

The museum, itself, is great with plenty of information in English and the exhibits are well presented.
