There are some very interesting Etruscan artifacts on display and during my visit, very few people in the museum. I was able to watch the Corpus Domini parade from the balcony of the museum without anyone else there!

This was what I discovered many years ago long before the range of calendar dates suitable for indicating the time of my visit were made available for completing this review. Nothing more complicated than that. Well preserved antiquities include Etruscan artifacts, an amphora collection, a...More
