We had a group tour in English with an excellent guide who made a real difference to how well we could appreciate the works on display.

Essential visit if you even remotely enjoy ancient history / Greek & Roman art. It's a small but packed museum, with some great works I haven't seen before (the Hellenistic room was amazing). Beautiful courtyard and good coffee at the tiny cafe, too.

Really a gem. The permanent collection is arranged to make it easy to understand the historical progression. And the museum is small and focused. A
