The museum is a nice complement to the archeological site. It has a number of unique artifacts. Worth the visit!

If you visit the temples you should visit the museum as well. It's worth it, It's pretty big you'll need some time.

We drove about 2 1/2 hours south from Vico Equense, and made a day out of visiting this site. I'm really glad we did, because it's probably one of the most accessible sites I've ever visited, as far as how you are allowed to enter...More

Lovely setting but probably only worth 30 minutes of your time. Includes relics from the temples and artefacts found in the excavated tombs of Greek settlers, Luccans and Romans. Most interesting are some of the carvings from the temples of the feats of Hercules and...More
