5) WHY VISIT THE NATIONAL ARCHEOLOGICAL MUSEUM OF VENICE?

Founded in 1523, following a donation by Cardinal Domenico Grimani to the Republic of Venice, the National Archaeological Museum in Venice is a state museum, included in the circuit of the Special Superintendence for the historical, artistic and ethno-anthropological heritage and for the Museums of the City of Venice and the municipalities of the lagoon areas.

It houses important original finds, mainly from the Greek-Roman age, plus a portion of the archaeological collection of the Correr Museum with finds from the Neolithic and Bronze Age, Egyptian and Assyrian-Babylonian antiquities, Greek, Etruscan and Roman artworks.

The exhibition consists of 20 rooms. Of particular note is the Ara Grimani, an original of Hellenistic art perhaps coming from Rome; the group of Venetian Galatians, part of the collection that Domenico Grimani had assembled with works coming largely from a piece of land owned by him in Rome; and the 'Samagher Capsella', an ivory and silver reliquary decorated with Christian subjects, datable to the 5th century A.D.

'nice view'

the skip the line ticket is efficient but time is time. It's not possible to go up the tower even if you are earlier and if there is not to much queue. But the view over venice worths it.

'En vaut vraiment la peine !'

Cela vaut la peine d'acheter le billet à l'avance, la visite du Palais des Doges est magnifique et cela donne l'occasion de visiter les autres sites de la place St-Marc. Il faut juste imprimer l'email et l'échanger au guichet des billets une fois sur place.

Strengths

Billet combiné et pas de queue
