This includes precious paintings by Titian and other great masters, antique sculptures and great Renaissance pieces from Barbo and Fulvio Orsini and the Medici collection. The collection is enriched by the largest archaeological collection in history, consisting of the precious remains of towns buried by Vesuvius during the eruption of 79 AD. Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Napoli or National Archaeological Museum of Naples also has pieces from Etruscan and Roman civilization from cities such as Capua, Nola, Pozzuoli, Baia, Miseno, Capri and many more.
