National Archaeological Museum
The Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Napoli is home to the greatest collection of ancient art and artifacts in the world, mainly made up of the Farnese family’s fantastic haul of ancient Greek and Roman sculpture and pieces salvaged from the ancient cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum. It is is huge, however, so be selective: Look out for the monumental Farnese Bull, the two powerful Tyrannicides (tyrant killers), mosaics on the mezzanine floor and the superb bronzes from the Villa dei Papiri in Herculaneum.
