Travelers who walk through the doors of Italy’s National Museum of Archaeology will be immediately transported back in time. In addition to an impressive collection of Graeco-Roman artifacts, visitors will find Egyptian relics, iconic European sculptures, original carvings, stunning frescos and even ornate mosaics from the city of Pompeii.
Visitors can easily wander the halls and galleries on their own, but travelers who want to learn more about the museum’s most iconic pieces may prefer to purchase an audio guide that offers up rich details of the museum’s top attractions, like Hercules and the infamous raging bull.
The museum is located in Naples’ Piazza Museo Nazionale and is open from 9 a.m. until 7:30 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. It is accessible by taking the bus to the Piazza Cavour or the metro to the Cavour station.
