This little-known private museum in the heart of Puglia, and it is possibly one of the most delightful in the whole of Italy. Housed in the beautiful Jatta Palazzo, the centuries-old home of a local family, it comprises an incredibly fine collection of ancient Greek...More

What an amazing story and what a fascinating little private museum. While it may be small, it has a collection of flawless Greco and Roman pottery that most large museums would envy. And the fact that is small makes it very "digestible" for those very...More

This museum was founded as a private collection. It is free and includes very interesting items. We couldn't find a guide who knew English but there is a good booklet in English. The Italian pronounced its name : YATTA

Antiquities perfectly preserved, like none others we've seen before. The colors, materials, importance of the objects were very impressive. Well explained by our docent.

We went here having seen a piece about it on TV. The place is amazing. Four rooms with display cases full of artifacts collected by a member of the Jatta family. It's free and you get a lovely booklet in English
