Full description
Meet the guide and enter the beautiful building with a skip-the-line ticket. Explore the exhibitions dedicated exclusively to ancient Egyptian culture and art. Take a journey through time as the displays show items in chronological order, from the 4th-century BC to the 3rd-century AD. Together with your guide, discover the mysterious and magical side of the Egyptian Empire on this gripping tour.  See the spectacular Tomb of Kha, a tomb builder to the pharaohs, which dates back to 3,500 BC. Admire the sarcophagi, statues, sundries, and furniture, as well as astonishingly well-preserved items such as salted meat and a pottery bowl with the remains of tamarind and grapes. Next, head to the Drovetti Collection of papyrus sheets, which is considered by some as the most important in the world. Finally, visit the Ellesija Temple, a rock-hewn temple which is more than 3,500-years-old. Learn about how the temple was built for Pharaoh Tuthmosis III and was saved from Nile flooding before it was moved to Italy in 1966. During the visit, feel free to take a break at the museum cafeteria and at the end don't forget to stop at the marvelous souvenir shop.

Era la prima volta che visitavamo il Museo Egizio ed abbiamo avuto la fortuna di avere una guida appassionata e competente. E' riuscito a trasmetterci la passione e tutte le informazioni interessanti da sapere con una modalità divertente e fruibile. Il museo poi è di una bellezza inaudita, c'è tanta storia e conoscenza al suo interno.

Disappointing. The guide who conducted the activity had limited knowledge of Spanish. This would not have been a problem if at least the explanations about the museum pieces had been correct. However, it was not like that, the inventiveness, imagination and personal opinion of the guide predominated at all times compared to the objective and rigorous information that these pieces deserve and, of course, the visitor of this museum hopes to hear. A disaster!

Significant collection with many important pieces...leave plenty of time to see everything. Our guide Marco was very expert in Egyptian history and worked overtime to show us the important pieces. It is a must to have him tour with you.
