Definitely a must-see
"My wife and I are ancient history buffs so to visit the National Archaeological Museum in Naples has been a lifetime dream. Wanting the best possible visit, we booked LivItaly's private guided tour and we couldn't have been more pleased. The museum is a treasure chest of very well preserved art and artifacts from ancient times continuing through to the more classical and Renaisance period. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the museum and the pieces we were seeing and we were able to set our own pace and linger where we wanted. This is a museum you don't want to miss but do it with a LivItaly guide. You won't be disappointed."
