Having read the reviews on here, I had to check that this was the museum I actually visited. Yes, it was. I can only relate my experience and that was virtually nothing in English. No leaflet, no guidebook, and very few descriptions in English. German...More

The museum displays some of the greatest mosaics and wall paintings of the Roman period. The quality of these pieces easily compares with what you would see in Rome, Naples, or Pompeii. An absolute must, considering entry is a mere 4€.

You can see the rests of the archbishop’s palace and an interesting archaeological museum. It is probably the second best collection of Roman paintings outside Pompeii. There is also an extensive collection of Roman pottery, including some hundreds fragments of Samian Ware.
