Full description

Visit the National Archaeological Museum of Naples with local guide Michele Arpa. Learn about new archaeological discoveries, hear in-depth explanations of the items you see, and connect with the ancient inhabitants of Pompeii through Michele's love of Naples, history, and art.

Meet Michele at the Archaeological Museum and head inside. Begin with the collections of frescoes and mosaics from Pompeii and Herculaneum, preserved by the enormous eruption of Mt. Vesuvius. As you stroll through the collections, hear about daily life in Pompeii and Herculaneum.

See the papyrus scrolls with writings on Greek philosophy, charred by the lava. Marvel at the statues of the Dancers and the Runners, ready to start a race. Head to the statues of the Farnese collection, belonging to the family of the first Bournob King of Naples: Charles II. Enter the statues room of the Baths of Caracalla and see the Hercules and Farnese Bull statues and the Farnese cup.

Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. She was punctual and responded to our requests. Experience a little too expensive, children aged 10 and 12 paid like adults. Entrance tickets not included in the price which meant that we had to queue and we lost 10 minutes.
