Visited the National Archeological Museum in Viterbo-extremely interesting with artifacts and information dating from approximately 1200 BC to 800 AD. A number of sites that have been excavated revealing archeological treasures! Must displays had English as well as Italian explanations.

it is the probably the best attraction in Narni BUT unfortunately it is still closed and NO ONE really knows when it will open. It would not be that bad if getting there was not so hard unless you have ..... a micro car lol.

We arrived to see that the castle is closed, and there was some number on the wall with some Italian writing. We called to find out the castle is closed until July. On the bright side, the walk to the castle was very scenic, and worth if you want to take some beautiful pictures of the valley, but difficult when you're walking uphill at a 30C heat.

This well restored hilltop castle is worth the effort to climb up to. Though the museum is sparse in things to see the scriptorium was memorable

Worth climbing the for the views alone. The museum is quite a random collection, mostly of immitation articles intended to convey an image of past life in the caste. Not very convincing, but kids may like it.
