Florence’s Hidden Past: Tour of the National Archaeological Museum

Tour Description

Are you ready to discover the real Etruscan Chimera? How about the mummies that Florence houses?

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.

We have prepared two different itineraries for you: the first was created for the enjoyment of children and those who are not experts in archaeology. This will be a light itinerary through the Museum’s most famous Roman, Greek and Egyptian artifacts, accompanied by our certified local guide.

The second route, provides a more in-depth and technical archaeological experience, ideal for art experts interested in seeing unique pieces such as Mater Matuta, now on display at the museum.

Choose the route that inspires you most with your guidebook.

This museum was founded shortly after the Franco-Tuscan expedition of Champollion, a famous scholar and decoder of hieroglyphs.

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 in the Louvre) in an atmosphere made mystical by Egyptian frescoes and decorations.

The Museum’s exquisite and exotic garden houses some rare jewels, real Etruscan megalithic tombs, Roman mosaics and more.
