This small museum of archeological relics contains some of the best Roman bronzes I have seen anywhere. Bronzes seldom survive because they get meted down to make armaments. but these are fascinating, including a dog and a horse.

If it is a lot of hassle to get here, forget about it, unless you have a particular interest in bronzes. The museum is small, one of the three rooms even closed when we visited, and you are in and out in 15 minutes.
