Full description
Enjoy a guided tour of the Naples National Archaeological Museum, located at the northwest corner of the city’s original Greek wall. The 2-hour tour will introduce you to one of the world’s greatest archaeology collections, including extraordinary masterworks of art discovered in Pompeii, Herculaneum, Stabiae, Oplontis, and related villas. At its core is the Farnesian collection of sculptures and other objects, such as the mosaic of Alexander the Great from the House of the Fauno in Pompeii. See silvers from the House of Menandro in Pompeii, and a number of Roman frescoes excavated from the Vesuvian area. Wander the gallery containing the Farnese Collection to admire the legendary statues of Hercules at rest, as well as 2 Tyrannicide and the majestic group called “Toro Farnese.” Your guide will explain the use of everyday objects, most notably the beautiful silverware from the Villa of Menandro and the so called “Blue Vase” from a tomb in Pompeii.

We had a wonderful visit throughout the museum. Our guide Nicoletta met us outside the museum 10 minutes prior to our scheduled time. She ushered us in prioritizing our collection visits so that we had no almost no other people around us! She is a true archeologist that has been on many digs! Her explanations helped us understand our visits to Pompei and Herculaneum. She knew the elevator access helped us secure a lost bag successfully and explained every collection perfectly. Some of the best things are very small! It was a great day in a great museum!

Amazing time in the Archaeological Museum led by Giulia. To be able to speak with someone of her caliber about the collection was an a once in a lifetime opportunity. The collection and the museum itself are incredible and should be seen. But having a guide - especially one so excellent - added so much to the depth of the experience.

Excellent all around

Raphael was an excellent guide. I was particularly interested in artifacts from Pompeii and Herculaneum, so we spent most of our time in those areas, and they were amazing. We also spent some time in other, also interesting areas. Unlike other museums we were at, this one was not too crowded, and having our own guide rather than being in a large tour group made the tour much more enjoyable and enabled us to better appreciate the museum's fascinating artifacts and works of art. Altogether this was easily our most enjoyable museum experience from our two weeks in Italy.
