What suprises me a little is that the part of the collection (especially the mosaics outdoors exhibition) is in very poor condition. Not preserved, not conserved, partially covered with water... Looks like it was forgotten by the museum staff... More

Wandering around outside in the grounds was lovely. There are some nice places to sit by the water and admire the surroundings.

It was good to be able to sit in a cool place on a comfortable pouffe and read the English fact sheet loaned from the ticket desk (other languages available) before walking through the 2 (!) rooms of Etruscan, Roman, and Greek artefacts from 8th century B.C. to 5th century A.D. The displays consist of little else than amphorae (wine... More
