The National Archaeological Museum of Naples is an important Italian archaeological museum, particularly for ancient Roman remains.
The museum has one of the world’s best collections of Greek and Roman antiquities, including mosaics, sculptures, gems, glass and silver, and a collection of Roman erotica from Pompeii.
The exquisite collection of mosaics, are mostly from Pompeii. Of the series taken from the Casa del Fauno, particularly striking is La battaglia di Alessandro contro Dario. If you come to visit the museum, you should come and see this part, at least.
The museum has fascinating discoveries from Pompeii, Herculaneum, Boscoreale, Stabiae and Cuma. Among them are whimsical wall frescoes from the Villa di Agrippa Postumus and the Casa di Meleagro, extraordinary bronzes from the Villa dei Papiri, as well as ceramics, glassware, engraved coppers and Greek funerary vases.
I was impressed by the museum. It had so much to offer, with incredible pieces of art. It was a very cold, rainy day when I visited the museum. I spent a few hours there, but you could spend all day, and still not see everything! It was definitely worth a visit!
