From the legend of Tauroentum to the Villa Maritima

Legend has it that the current site of the Museum was the location of the Greek city of Tauroentum, which disappeared “beneath the waves” in the 3rd century AD.

 

The site also has traces of a large Roman settlement from the 1st century onwards, in which some 2000 inhabitants once lived in a vast ‘Villa Maritima’ (seaside villa).

 

The Museum today contains three rooms housing an important collection of objects found on the site, including amphoras, coins and glassware, as well as a remarkable set of sepulchres.
