What people are saying about Naples National Archaeological Museum

We had a wonderful visit throughout the museum. Our guide Nicoletta met us outside the museum 10 minutes prior to our scheduled time. She ushered us in prioritizing our collection visits so that we had no almost no other people around us! She is a true archeologist that has been on many digs! Her explanations helped us understand our visits to Pompei and Herculaneum. She knew the elevator access helped us secure a lost bag successfully and explained every collection perfectly. Some of the best things are very small! It was a great day in a great museum!

Amazing time in the Archaeological Museum led by Giulia. To be able to speak with someone of her caliber about the collection was an a once in a lifetime opportunity. The collection and the museum itself are incredible and should be seen. But having a guide - especially one so excellent - added so much to the depth of the experience.

Outstanding private tour. The museum is excellent. The guide was extremely knowledgeable. We focused on the relics from Pompeii and had an excellent tour.

Knowledge, helpful, informative guide She explained important historical background and we saw the most important pieces in the museum Evcellente!
