MarTa Archaeological Museum Taranto tour: very impressive great gold artifacts

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.

This place offers the opportunity to meet the ancient Spartans and to see how they lived and what they loved! Dott. Bellacicco has done a remarkable job in bringing this place to light and making it available for everyone. I am so glad of having been in such a unique place!

We had no idea Taranto had so much ancient Greek history. It was really amazing! We were so appreciative of this museum. We walked in on day that they were closed to the public but had a large tour group there and they gave us a tour anyway! The owners of the museum did a really great job of giving us a tour in Italian with a tiny bit of English. They were SO nice and the man was so knowledgeable. He gave us an amazing tour showing us the actual Spartan street, Greek artifacts, and the stairway that heads down to the sea. We loved spending time there. Grazie mille! Mi dispiace non parliamo Italiano! Amore, gli spartani :)

It is a real fine museum to visitas you learn a lot about the history of Taranto during the ages. BUT if youare not familiar with the Italian language, I can imagine that for these people ther is not much to learn, I would advise the owners (for it is a privata museum) to make an effortand organise not only tours in Italian , but also inEnglish, French or German
