6 reviews
Have you already seen the Archaeological Museum of Naples and think you have seen everything? Nothing more wrong.<br><br>The archaeological museum MarTa of Taranto will amaze you and leave you breathless by the beauty of the precious artifacts displayed in a large exhibition dedicated to the Apulian Greece-Roman artefacts arranged according to the type of materials: marble sculptures, monumental tombs, soft stone sculptures , pottery of the necropolis, goldsmiths.<br><br>The guided tour will take you to visit the rooms dedicated to marble sculptures, another room with sculptures, mosaics and epigraphs from public and private buildings.<br><br>Following will visit the rooms dedicated to the pottery from the necropolis. The diamond point of the museum are the so-called Ori of Taranto (Golds of Taranto) which, in reality, are almost all of Canosa di Puglia town.<br><br>The tour ends with a visit to the mosaics of the baths and villas of the Roman patricians, terracotta tools and the numismatic collection.

From the brochure supplied by the Museum, the address is actually Palazzo Pantaleo, Rampa Pantaleo, no. 6, Taranto 74123 This is a short steep ramp off Corso Vittorio Emanuel 11 which is the road that faces the Mediterranean sea - The museum is not in Via Duomo For my visit on Thur.15 October 2015, I was conducted around by Gabriella, a knowledgeable English speaking guide. According to the brochure, there are 7 rooms of displays. I was shown the original palace building, its doors, spacious kitchen, windows and ceilings which are painted in allegorical scenes. As the palace faces the sea, there was an attempt to re-create, through paintings, the natural landscape; trees, flowers, gardens and fauna. I was shown the concert hall that is known for its superb acoustics aided by its parquetry flooring. In glass cases were miniature creations of religious processions with a Spanish emphasis. In other displays were cooking and serving ceramic ware about 250 years old. There were displays of small terra-cotta figures. In another hall I was reminded of the long history Taranto has with the fishing industry: Here were fish traps and nets. Then the agricultural past with a heavy wooden yoke suited to having 2 - abreast oxen and other manual labour tools. I consider this museum complements the exhibits that may be seen in other museums in Taranto.
