Museo Archeologico Nazionale d'Abruzzo – La Civitella


'La Civitella' is more modern than its museum twin across the road. It curls around a Roman amphitheatre built at the city's highest point in the 1st century AD, and was restored in 2000. Exhibits charting the history of Chieti and the area since Palaeolithic times include relics of the pre-Roman Marrucini, and statuary and items from early Imperial Rome.
