Byzantine & Postbyzantine Collection information
The Byzantine museum is in the impressively restored Church of San Salvatore. It has a small but fascinating collection of artefacts, icons, jewellery and coins, including a fine segment of a mosaic floor for an early-Christian basilica and a prized icon of St George slaying the dragon. The building has a mixed bag of interesting architectural features from its various occupiers.
A combined ticket with the Archaeological Museum costs €3.
