Located at almost the opposite end of town from the Duomo, this museum was three stories of pottery, cast metal, and stone funerary urns. Admission to the single museum was 8E per person (10E for a combo ticket that includes 2 other museums), or 20E for Family ticket to all three. The gift shop was a bit "old school" but... More
