Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

There is no such place as the Museo della Nave Romana/Museum of the Roman Boat. The real name is Museo Delta Antico/Museum of the Ancient Delta which is shown as a separate Comacchio listing.

This is a wonderful museum. The bottom floor is mainly taken up with exhibits from the Roman boat that was dug up from a nearby canal in 1981.

The top floor explores the history of the area during the ages.

The staff are extremely friendly and when paying the cheap €6 entrance ticket they even pestered me to find out if I had any right to a reduction!

The location is picturesque next to a canal, but that rules out parking. I parked in the nearby free Co-op car park and walked five minutes to the museum.

The exhibits are explained in both Italian and (excellent) English which is a pleasant surprise in Italy.

For history buffs - and after all, there is one in all of us - this is a fascinating museum telling the story of the region and a world that is somehow long gone, and somehow close. With all the money that has been poured into the exhibit, a few euros more could have been spent on translation and perhaps some interactive showing of the naval activities at the time of the wreck.

Many ingots of lead and numerous amphorae as well as other pottery are on disply on the second floor and the first floor shows models of the ship and its hull. This is an extraordinary find which reveals much about life in Roman times.

There are some very rare items on display in a well set out museum. The only issue is that the boat isn't there - not even a replica.
Nevertheless, worth a visit for some of the artefacts recovered.

A small but fascinating museum. Some of the articles on show are amazingly well preserved. Men's footwear from 1st century BC.

This small museum made the most of the discovery of a Roman commercial vessel that sank near Comacchio 100 BC. Well worth a visit to complete your stroll through Comacchio.

Wandering around the streets and canals of Comacchio, deservedly known as "little Venice", we came across this museum displaying the cargo of a Roman ship discovered in the1980s. Not only were we grateful to escape from the 38 degrees outside into an air conditioned space, but we were very intrigued by the amazing artefacts on display, including some very fine miniature shrines to Venus and Priapus and other deities, which still had working doors on them. Apparently the ship (of which there are models and a photo-montage on display), was discovered outside the town during the dredging of a canal, which in Roman times would have been part of the seashore as a further 4km of land has been reclaimed from the sea in the intervening centuries. The original boat, built sometime in the first century BC, is kept nearby in a special airtight environment to avoid any further deterioration.

The lady on the reception desk was incredibly helpful and filled in all sorts of historical detail for us (in Italian). There is quite lot of information in English though.

The ship is not accessible to visitors but it is a fine museum for the artifacts. The exhibits are well labeled.

a huge fund of information in several languages, great displays and models. It will be complete when the actual boat is fully restored and on display.
