Museo Archeologico Nazionale

This museum is included in the Doge's Palace combined ticket. The museum is small. It has some nice samples of Roman portrait but overall does not leave a lasting impression.

You get combined entry as part of the Museo Currer, the various large Globes of the earth from different periods were quite fascinating, giving an insight into what people thought the world looked like in medieval times

There's few interesting items on a display, especially for those interested in archeology. Combined ticket to all museums at saint mark square costs 19 euro, but if you book online tour of clock (torre dell'ornitologio), then it's only 12 all included (except palazzo ducale).

A nice museum to go though. It is part of a three museum package that you can get for one price and it is conveniently located in the Saint Marco area

This fantastic and very large museum is situated in St Mark's Square - the entrance is at the end of the square opposite to the basilica. There are some really great Greek and Roman statues here, and there are even some Egyptian mummies.

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
