Museo della Città information
This rambling museum is best known for its Roman section. Spread over several rooms with excellent bilingual (Italian/English) signage are finds from two nearby Roman villas, including splendid mosaics, a rare and exquisite representation of fish rendered in coloured glass, and the world's largest collection of Roman surgical instruments. Other highlights include the colourful and imaginative doodlings of Federico Fellini, whose Libro dei Miei Sogni (Book of My Dreams) is on display here.
Museum tickets also include admission to the adjacent Domus del Chirurgo , a recently excavated Roman villa with several fine floor mosaics still partially intact.
