Museo Archeologico – Arezzo Archaeological Museum

  • Museo Archeologico – Arezzo Archaeological Museum

    Set fairly close to the station, in the southern section of the city, this museum overlooks the remains of a Roman amphitheatre that once welcomed around 10,000 spectators. A section of the amphitheatre walls was incorporated into a 14th-century Olivetan monastery which now houses the Archaeological Museum. The Roman Arretium was originally an Etruscan city, but in 294 BC it became a Roman settlement, a convenient resting post on the Via Cassia between Rome and Florence. The site was later plundered to build the city walls and churches, and the perimeter wall is all that remains. On display are Etruscan and Roman artefacts, including the Aretine waterproof tableware which made Arezzo’s name. Known as Arretino, this fine, red Roman pottery once competed with the more famous Samian ware as the crockery of choice on aristocratic Roman dinner tables.

    Address: Museo Nazionale Gaio Cilinio Mecenate, Via Margaritone 10, Arezzo
