There are so many levels in visiting a zone and digging (no pun intended!) into the past can open your eyes to "what was" two thousand or more years ago.

This is a gem of a museum and it is very interesting to learn about the old civilizations that built their whole town on stilts. I would recommend this museum.

Very close to the Ponte Arche , more or less 7 Km , this place give you a great idea about the life of many many years ago. Why there ? How was possible just there ? Interesting questions that museum documents will give an easy answer .

This museum is in a small village about 30 km from Trento, Italy. It explores the history of dwellings built on and by a lake that existed nearby, thousands of years ago. It houses hundreds of objects discovered during excavation of what remains of the lake (now a UNESCO World Heritage site), including fruit, seeds, tools, pottery and jewellery. Objects... More
