Why take this tour

The National Archaeological Museum in Naples is rightly regarded as one of the oldest and  richest museums in the world. It was inaugurated by the Bourbons in 1816 to show mankind the extraordinary finds from Pompeii, Herculaneum and beyond. Housing the Farnese collection, the museum hosts the most extraordinary sculptures ever found in Rome.

We all know that audio guides and caption cards don’t make the appreciation of classical art easy. That’s why we at Askos Tours have made it our mission to bring the displays alive for you. Our expert archaeologist guides love their work, and are keen to share their passion with you. 

You’ll meet your expert guide at the entrance of the beautiful sixteenth-century palace. First, you’ll see the world renowned Farnese collection. Here, among the many masterpieces are the Hercules and the Bull, which once adorned the Baths of Caracalla.

The treasures of Pompeii and Herculaneum are kept on the upper floors. Here you’ll find the Alexander mosaic, a copy of which can be seen in Pompeii in the house of the Faun. The beautiful paintings detached during the excavations are truly a sight to behold. In the "scandalous" Secret Cabinet are extensive collections of objects of erotic art. Once regarded as too lascivious and obscene, these items were for centuries the prerogative of a select few.

If the Vatican Museums, the Louvre, and the British Museum are your thing, then you simply can't miss the MANN. There are no Roman art museums of equal measure anywhere else in the world!

With Askos Tours the masterpieces of the National Archaeological Museum in Naples get the prominence they richly deserve. If you really want to get to know the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, a tour of this exceptional museum is essential. Book now, or contact us for more information.

Our Reviews

  • A Great Way to Learn about Pompeii Artifacts

    My husband and I took this tour with Gioconda on our first day in Naples. She was very engaging and her knowledge of the different artifacts made it easier to understand what it was like during that time. She took us through all the highlights and shared the backstory of many items. I highly recommend this tour. We are planning to go to Pompeii next and see the actual site.
