The Neapolitan historical testimony is very important, and the art collections in this museum are proof of this. This is a must-visit.
The only one of its kind in the world.
One of the reasons why the city of Naples has a large quantity of historical testimonies in its buildings, museums and streets is that it has always been a city that was longed for by kings and emperors. The city became a capital itself and was home to the royal residence for many years, and it also played an important role during the Roman era. Therefore, its archaeological museum located at number 19 on the square of Piazza Museo holds various collections which turn this museum into the only one of its kind in the world. There are four essential collections that you can not leave out on your visit. The Farnesio collection with artefacts from the Roman Empire; the collection from places such as Pompeii, Stabiae, Herculaneum and Boscoreale with remains that tell the story of the area of Vesuvius, and the collection of Stefano Borgia, which consists of collections from his own museum and Caserta that go deep into the city's prehistoric periods.
