Description

Are you ready to discover the true Etruscan Chimera or the Mummies that Florence hosts? The Florentine Archaeological Museum is the second most important in Italy for Egyptology, right after the majestic museum in Turin. It is also the most important museum for Etruscan history. There are two different itineraries available to you. The first one was created for the enjoyment of your children and those who are not experts in archaeology. It will be a fun itinerary through the most famous Roman, Greek and Egyptian artifacts of the museum, accompanied by a certified local guide. The second itinerary, however, provides more in-depth and technical archaeological knowledge, which is ideal for art experts interested in seeing unique pieces such as Mater Matuta, now exhibited at the National Archaeological Museum in Florence. You can choose the path that inspires you with your guide. This museum was founded shortly after the Franco-Tuscan expedition of Champollion, the famous scholar and hieroglyphic decoder. The museum houses an important collection of Etruscan art, including the famous Chimera, as well as Egyptian artifacts and mummies (which are displayed only here, in Turin and at the Louvre) in an atmosphere that is made mystical by Egyptian frescoes and decorations. The exquisite and exotic garden of the museum houses some rare jewels. True Etruscan megalithic tombs, Roman mosaics and much more.
