The Museo Archeologico Nazionale in Naples has some true treasures, including mosaics and frescoes from Pompeii and Herculaneum, and the original “Beware of the dog” mosaic. (Attenti al cane in Italian)
World famous are the Vatican Museums and Christian and Art museums in Vatican City. The Vatican Museums contain huge collections that were built up by the various popes. Among many, many things worth seeing, there contain the most important renaissance masterpieces in the entire world.
There are about 20,000 items on display in the museums, though there are about 70,000 total.
Prices aren’t too bad either. Full price is 16 euros and entry is free the last Sunday of every month. Might be a bit crowded on those days though.
Entry is also free on September 27, which is world tourist day.
Skip the line tickets go for about $45.
You’ll want to count on at least 4 or 5 hours for this visit. There is much to see!
Don’t miss the Sistine Chapel, it’s the most important, and maybe the most beautiful part of the entire visit. The ceiling is something to remember forever,.
Just keep in mind that the waiting lines to get in are as famous as the museums themselves.
