    Museo Egizio
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    Discover the Egyptian Museum of Turin with a guided tour for small groups and marvel at the splendour, luxuries and daily life of pharaohs and queens of Ancient Egypt. First in the world by foundation and second in importance only to that in Cairo, the Egyptian Museum of Turin now houses about 300,000 finds and over 26,000 are kept in warehouses for the purpose of scientific research. Mummies, papyri and funerary finds of the great pharaohs make it an unmissable stop for any visit to the city of Turin. The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities was founded in 1824 thanks to the purchase by King Carlo Felice of a large collection of Egyptian antiquities, from statues, sarcophagi and mummies to papyri, bronzes, amulets and everyday objects (initially put together by the egyptologist Vitaliano Donati and later enriched by Bernardino Drovetti, consul general of France in Egypt). Thanks to excavations conducted in Egypt at the end of the nineteenth century and in the thirties, the collection continued to expand until it reached the extraordinary grandeur of our days. Discover the Isiaca Mensa (first object in Turin for the museum, probably built in Rome in the first century AD for a temple of the goddess Isis), the little temple of Ellesija (last object acquired by the museum thanks to a donation in 1970 of the Arabic Republic of Egypt for the Italian support in the rescue of the Nubian monuments) and a copy of the Rosetta Stone, now preserved at the British Museum in London.

Walked around Turin for a bit then toured the Egyptian Museum. Highly recommend the museum. Total tour of 3 hours was a bit much for second day of trip while being severely jet lagged but thru no fault of the tour.
